ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

People around the country are taking a pledge not to text and drive.

Albany's mayor signed a proclamation naming today The Drive 4 Pledges Day.

The campaign encourages people not to text behind the wheel and reminds them of the dangers.

Mayor Dorothy Hubbard says city leaders are taking the lead on the issue.

"The city and employees, commissioners, and mayor ought to be setting on example," said Mayor Dorothy Hubbard.

Soon, billboards will be up around the city and county to remind drivers that texting can wait.
