“DNT TXT N DRV” (bumper sticker)

"DNT TXT N DRV” ("Don’t Text and Drive") is a safety saying that has been printed on many different items.  The state of California created the “DNT TX N DRIVE” safety saying and publicized it in September 2007.

“Don’t Text and Drive” has been cited in print since at least August 2006.

Don’t Text And Drive
Thursday, August 31, 2006 | By Biz Stone (@biz) [16:22 UTC]
Today’s news about a kid in Michigan who smashed into a police car because he was texting while driving is a sobering reminder: Don’t text and drive. Twitter responsibly.

A message from California to its 16- and 17-year-olds: Dnt txt n drv.

North Star campaigns: DNT TXT N DRV
October 17, 2009 11:45 pm By MARGARET REIST
Ask a group of North Star High School student council members whether they’ve texted when they’re behind the wheel, and the answer is unanimous, if slightly sheepish.
(...)
The students contacted State Farm, which gave them $1,500 and advice on the campaign. Performance Dodge gave them $300.

With that money, they’ve made T-shirts, banners and posters and ordered 10,000 wristbands.

Everything carries the same slogan: Arrive Alive. DNT TXT N DRV.

But we are hesitant to change. I saw this firsthand when I instituted a policy at my company that forbids employees from using their phones for company business while driving. I heard countless stories about how hard it was for people to stop talking and texting while driving. Everyone is busy. Everyone feels she needs to use time in the car to get things done. But what happened to just driving?
