Fitness saves lives but so does safe driving! April 1st usually means a day full of jokes, pranks and fun. However, the this day also marks something serious; the beginning of ‘Distracted Driving Awareness Month.’ According to Text Free Driving nearly 60% of drivers admit to texting while driving while 80% of crashes, and 65% of near crashes, involved some form of driver inattention within 3 seconds of the event. In an effort to cut these alarming statistics, Verizon Wireless continues its 14-year track record of supporting safe driving initiatives by teaming with Actress Regina Hall for the wireless company’s It’s Up to Me program, which encourages responsible driving. See below for details on how you can enter to win a VIP meet and greet with Regina Hall!

Contest closes April 30, 2014, winners will be announced in May. Get started today by texting the word DRIVING to 74579.
