SAFE DRIVING CAMPAIGN TO LAUNCH ON EDISON ANNUAL FAMILY DAY AND 5K RACE
Cellular Fashions To Donate $7,500 In Hands-free Headsets
To Promote Driving Safety
EDISON, NJ - May 7, 2003 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Local cellular phone business,
Cellular Fashions, with three retail locations in Edison, is to donate 500
hands-free headset kits to Edison residents in support of Edison's new safety
ordinance. Starting April 23, 2003, Edison Township will no longer allow drivers
to use a cellular phone without a hands-free kit. This new ordinance comes after
increased safety concerns from Edison's Municipal Council.
With an expected turnout of 5,000 Edison residents, Cellular Fashions feels that
the Edison Municipal Alliance 13th Annual Family Day and 9th Annual 5K Race on
May 10th at the New Jersey Convention Center at Raritan Center
(www.njexpocenter.com) would be an ideal event to promote their new community
campaign: "Safety: Your Most Important Call."
The program, sponsored by the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association
(CTIA), an international industry organization, provides 10 key guidelines for
safety while driving. One of the most easily implemented life saving precautions
while driving is "when available, always use a hands-free device." [For a
complete list, see below.] Cellular Fashions is making hands-free devices
readily available in all its stores, pledging to give away a free hands-free
headset with any phone purchase, as well as on Edison's Family Day, where 500
hands-free headsets, with a retail value of $7,500, will be distributed to
Edison residents free of charge.
