Weekly Wellness Tip

Texting and Driving
In 2011, at least 23% (1.3 million crashes) of auto collisions involved cell phone use while driving. It is estimated that drivers who text take their eyes off the road for at least 5 seconds; that is equivalent to driving the length of a football field at 55 MPH. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration compares texting while driving to an individual getting behind the wheel after consuming four beers. In a recent survey, teen drivers reported texting as the number one driving distraction. Educating the public, and committing to put your phone down while driving, are key strategies to decrease the annual number of accidents and deaths associated with texting and driving. Everyone needs to work together to remind each other of the dangers of this everyday occurrence.

ABATE - Peace River Chapter rides again! 

For 18 years the ABATE Peace River Motorcycle Club has ridden into the Charlotte County School District to drop off school supplies for the Teacher Supply Depot. Sunday, August 24, found numerous bikers with backpacks filled with goodies traveling down Hwy 41 to Education Way to be greeted by Mary Fred Clemmons, Executive Director of Charlotte Local Education Foundation. Johnny Martin, President of the local ABATE Club, presented Mrs. Clemmons with a check as she presented him a Certificate of Thanks. Every year we look forward to the generosity of this wonderful group.
