5. The fairly blunt anti-texting-while-driving ads will run nationally during the middle of April.
Television, radio and digital advertisements using the phrase U Drive. U Text. U Pay. will run from April 7-15, which coincides with a nationwide law enforcement crackdown in states with distracted driving bans.

U Text. U Pay.”
