WPAFB, Ohio (WDTN) - Wright Patterson Air Force Base produced a video called, "Hang up and Drive" to back its new policy about texting and driving on base.
If you are caught texting behind the wheel it is an automatic 30-day suspension of your driving privileges on the base. This also applies if you are caught talking on your cell phone while driving, unless it is a hands free device.
"There are approximately 27,000 people on the base," said Airman Nicholas Dastas, who is featured in the video. "Park your car, pull over and then check your messages or make a phone call. It will make the roads safer."
"Texting results in traffic accidents," said Officer Michael Henning, with the 88th Security Force. "A distracted driver could strike a pedestrian. In general, it could cause a lot of pain for someone and their family."
