TextLess Live More and Charleston Pops
Their Mission is Simple: End Distracted Driving.
Through peer-to-peer dialogue, education and behavior modification, TextLess Live More’s mission is to end distracted driving, prevent crashes and save lives.
Our Pledge: Never Go Digital Behind-the-Wheel.
TextLess Live More was founded by friends of Merritt Levitan, an 18-year-old girl who lost her life on July 3, 2013 to a distracted driver who was texting behind-the-wheel.
Merritt died because of 4 seconds of texting. She is the inspiration behind our mission.
Thank you for spreading the message of TextLess Live More.
