In Memory Of Ashley Jones-Davis

Texting while driving

“It’s my mission and life purpose to help people see that they are supposed to be happy and love their life and themselves and only have good things come to them.”

- Ashley Jones-Davis 


Ashley Jones-Davis was a smart, beautiful young woman who was full of life and always smiling. On February 18, 2011 Ashley died when her car crossed over the center line and smashed head-on into a Freightliner box truck. She was sending a text message and never looked up.

After the accident, Ashley’s mom Diana and her brother and sister Austin and Cheryce have made it their mission in life to stop people from driving distracted. At every single TADD presentation they pour their hearts out to the students; remembering Ashley’s life and talking about how their lives have changed without her.

No family should ever have to go through what Ashley’s family is still struggling to deal with. Before you pick up your phone while driving please think about the people in your life, think about how hard it would be for your mom to get that call at 2 am from the police, or for your younger sister to realize on her 22nd birthday that she is now older than the age her older sister lived to be. But also think about the other people on the road whose lives you will be endangering because you just couldn’t wait to send that text message.

No text message is worth a life. Take the pledge to stop texting while driving.

    I hope and pray that people don’t text and drive, I mean why risk somebodys life over a reply that says “Hey”. I lost my cousin to somebody that was on their phone. It’s a heartbreak that’s hard to forget and also forgive that person who caused it. A text can wait, life is too short. Next thing you know it it could be your life that’s taken.

    It’s not worth risking your life over one text message so here is to all those who text out there: SAVE YOUR LIFE DON’T TEXT AND DRIVE!!!! put down those phones and save the world. For every one text unanswered that is two lives saved. Always remeber that.


    I drop a comment whenever I appreciate a post on a website or if I
    have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation.
    It is a result of the passion displayed in the post I looked
    at. And on this post In Memory Of Ashley Jones-Davis | Teens Against Distracted Driving.
    I was actually moved enough to create a comment ;-) I do have some
    questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be simply me or do some of
    the responses look like they are left by brain dead people?
    :-P And, if you are writing on other online social sites, I’d like to keep up
    with you. Would you make a list the complete urls of your shared sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
