Have you ordered your free thumb socks yet? Francia Raisa gave them two thumbs up (in Spanish) last month to promote DoSomething's no texting while driving campaign.
So, what the heck are thumb socks? They're "socks" that you put on your thumbs to stop yourself from texting while driving. If you can't resist picking up your phone the second you hear a text alert, these will remind you of how dangerous doing so while driving can be -- in fact, mixing texting and driving makes you 4 times more likely to get into a car accident. That's scary and expensive...in other words, not worth it.
Want your own thumbs socks or know someone who could really use a pair? Young drivers under 25 You'll get two free pairs while supplies last. Who doesn't love free stuff?
Here are tips from DoSomething about what to do with your thumb socks:
-- Keep your thumb socks in your glove compartment so you're always ready for safe driving.
-- Give a friend a pair. Hey, you get two!
-- Take pictures of you and your friends rocking your thumb socks.
If you don't speak Spanish, Francia said she was the queen of texting, but she NEVER texts while driving and you shouldn't either.
