Get Involved: Teens

Did you know that traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for American teens? And when it comes to distracted driving, young people are among the most likely to text and talk behind the wheel.

Don't become a statistic. Here's how you can keep yourself and others safe when you're out on the road:

1. Take the Pledge

Commit to being a safe, distraction-free driver. Take our pledge, print out the pledge certificate, and keep it in your car or locker as a reminder to stay off the phone when you're driving.

2. Be Seen

Share a message/video from our website on Facebook or Twitter to let your friends know about the consequences of cell phone use behind the wheel. Change your social networking profile picture to remind your friends that texting while driving could 'wreck it all'.

3. Speak Up

Don't stop at being a great driver - be a great passenger! Make sure to call out your friends, and even your parents, if you see them using a cell phone behind the wheel.

4. Spread the Word

Get involved in promoting safe driving in your community. Hang up posters, host an event on distracted driving, or start a SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) chapter at your school.
