One of the features of the event will be AT&T's 11-minute video, “It Can Wait,” which has testimony of surviving family members and friends of victims of texting-while-driving accidents.

Oh, yeah. There's more. You could win an iPad or some other great prize.

Those who attend will find a variety of information booths to visit, as well as some special attractions. There will be classic vehicles (the “hot cars”) from local car clubs, and the popular Thunder Girls cheerleaders, as well as the Thunder mascot, Rumble.

In the grand finale, the cheerleaders and Rumble will perform a skit pointing out the dangers of distracted driving in a lighthearted way.

By the way ...

The Freede Wellness Center is on NW 27, between N Indiana and N Florida avenues. You can take NW 27 east three blocks from N Pennsylvania, or go three blocks west from N Classen Boulevard on NW 27.

Enjoy your week and drive safely.
