Our Mission Statement

Did you know that over 5,000 people die each year from distracted driving in the United States alone?

Did you also know that studies show that texting while driving impairs a driver in the same manner as being legally intoxicated?

That's why KOLR, KOZL and OzarksFirst.com are teaming up to bring you The Ozarks No Text Zone! This is a new program meant to do one thing: get all drivers in the Ozarks to pledge to never text while driving.

Help us put the brakes on texting and driving. Click here and sign the pledge, visit any of our sponsors to pick up your thumb band, and then follow through on your word. We're all counting on you.
