Sedalia Police Chief John DeGonia joined Sedalia Mayor Elaine Horn for a proclamation on Monday morning observing ‘No Text on Board’ Pledge Day, which is September 19.

A recent university study showed those who send text messages while driving are 23 times more likely to crash, and in a national survey, 43 percent of American teenage drivers admitted to texting while driving, even though 97 percent of them believe it’s dangerous to do so.
