"Thumbs Up. Phones Down." car magnets

Mintz + Hoke Gives “Thumbs Up” to Hartford Hospital’s New Campaign to End Distracted Driving

Mintz + Hoke is getting behind Hartford Hospital’s life-saving initiative to make our roads safer. With more than 3,000 people being killed in car crashes involving a distracted driver each year, Hartford Hospital hopes to discourage distracted driving through its "Thumbs Up. Phones Down." campaign, asking people to take the pledge and put their phones down in the car.

Several M+H employees have already taken the pledge to put their phones down and many have placed awareness magnets on their cars to encourage more drivers to do the same.  Mintz + Hoke Media Only was a key partner in the campaign, as evidenced by billboards on I-84 and I-91.

In this Hartford Courant article, a nurse at Hartford Hospital who recently lost her 11-year-old daughter to a distracted driver announces her support for "Thumbs Up. Phones Down." Consider joining her (and us) in taking the pledge to not to be a distracted driver. While you’re at it, encourage those you care about to do their part to save lives.
