With the issue of texting and driving on the minds of many Americans lately, we appreciate the support of the Vermont Legislature on this issue and their efforts in addressing it during this legislative session. As the largest wireless service provider, last year we launched a national ad campaign to bring forth this same message. Drivers must stay focused on the road ahead to ensure safety for others and themselves.”To learn more about the Verizon Wireless “Don’t Text and Drive” campaign, visit http://aboutus.vzw.com/wirelessissues/driving.html(link is external)About Verizon WirelessVerizon Wireless operates the nation’s most reliable and largest wireless voice and 3G data network, serving more than 91 million customers.
