Kelly Cline and Senator Timothy M. Kennedy, D-58th District, officially launched a new advocacy and awareness group called Families Against Texting While Driving Thursday at the West Seneca West Senior High School.
Families Against Texting While Driving is coming together as one strong voice to send a message to Albany: New Yorkers believe in safety first.
The group’s first task will be advocating for the strengthening of state laws against texting while driving. Families Against Texting While Driving aims to arm law enforcement with the tools they need to crackdown on the dangerous and deadly habit. Local families, students and law enforcement officials joined Kennedy and Cline at a morning press conference to voice support for the fight to end texting while driving in New York State.
