The way people drive nowadays, can’t be mad at this.
Bun B Featured In Houston Mayor Annise Parker’s Ant-Texting While Driving Campaign
Action could be taken on a local level under Mayor Annise Parker’s new campaign to curb texting while driving if there are no steps taken during the state’s legislative session.
Parker will launch her anti-texting-while-driving campaign at a news conference Tuesday morning at Houston City Hall, where details will be revealed.
The campaign will include public service announcements featuring Parker alongside Houston rapper Bernard “Bun B” Freeman, said city spokeswoman Jessica Michan. Last week, Parker tweeted that she was taping a PSA for the campaign with the famed rapper for the campaign.
The mayor and Bun B have a history. In August 2011, Parker issued a city proclamation creating an official “Bun B Day.” He is best known as half of the UGK rap duo. In Houston, he has taught as a guest lecturer at Rice University and worked with community projects, particularly the youth.
Michan said the new campaign requires action from legislators in Austin during the legislative session, but would not elaborate further. In 2011, both the state House and Senate passed a statewide texting while driving ban, but it was vetoed by Gov. Rick Perry at the end of the legislative session. Several bills were again filed this year.
Rappers doin’ good in the hood. Can’t be mad at that.
