Jordin Sparks was at an event in New York on Tuesday to encourage people not to text and drive.
The singer put her thumbprint on a pledge banner that is traveling around 30 cities in the US in a bid to stop car accidents caused as a result of drivers texting. Sponsored by Allstate Insurance, the event took place at the Shoreham Hotel in New York City.
“Unfortunately, it can be easy to forget the dangers of texting and driving when you get behind the wheel,” said Sparks. “That’s why it is important for teens, their friends and families to acknowledge its risks and pledge together not to do it. I’m glad to take this public pledge with Allstate, because sending a text isn’t worth taking a life.”
