TEXTLESS Live More! End Distracted Driving & Save Lives
Message from the Founders
Always smiling, always with friends, Merritt Levitan lived in the realest way possible. She never failed to be completely attached to what was happening right in front of her. She embodied life in its truest form. She biked, skied, played tennis, surfed, and embraced the outdoors and life around her. Merritt lost her life to a distracted driver who was texting. Merritt was 18 years old.
In this way, Merritt inspired us to start this campaign.
Texting and driving is unacceptable. We know that, but can we help it? We pass every day connected to our phones. If we are so in the habit of texting, how can it not be instinctual to pick up our phones when we’re in the car?
Every day in the United States, 11 teenagers die in accidents related to texting while driving.
94% of teenagers call texting and driving a serious threat, yet 35% admit to doing it.
Although TextLess Live More is designed to prevent texting and driving, we want this movement to be bigger than that: our dual goal is to prevent texting and driving AND decrease excessive phone-use.
Distracted Driving is our generation’s Drunk Driving!
You can help us spread the word about TextLess Live More and save lives. Please join the campaign today and bring TLLM to your school or community. Order the blue TLLM bracelet – Merritt’s favorite color – and get started. We look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you and please don’t text and drive,
