The organization is called The Arkansas Coalition Against Texting While Driving. The group is dedicated to creating an awareness of the dangers of texting while driving amongst Arkansans young and old.
Members of the coalition include AT&T, Arkansas Children's Hospital, Arkansas State Police and the Arkansas Department of Education.
The coalition officially came together in May 2010 after Governor Beebe issued a proclamation at Central High School where he declared April as National Distracted Driving Awareness month.
The group's current project is a statewide high school pledge drive called "Texting While Driving: I WILL Wait," which aims to educate high school students in the state of Arkansas about the dangers of texting while driving.
Thursday on Today's THV at 6:30 p.m., THV's Dawn Scott interviews AT & T's Ronnie Dedman for more details on the group's mission.
