    Stop Texting and Driving -- And Spread the Word | Digiday

    Steve Babcock, executive creative director at EVB, has created a special social campaign and site called the “ Red Thumb Reminder ” to remind drivers to put down their smartphones and concentrate on the road instead of checking who just liked their photo on Instagram.
