Distracted Driving Awareness Campaign
Follow Us on Social Media: #TeensDriveSafe
Communities in Motion's Distracted Driving Awareness Campaign focuses on safe driving habits among high school students, such as wearing a seat belt and not being distracted behind the wheel.
Our program kicked off in the fall and will conclude at the end of April, which is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. This educational campaign includes:
Reinforcing the importance of safety and not being distracted behind the wheel for teenagers in our area high schools.
An interactive presentation to local high school students, which will focus on distracted driving.
A student pledge where teens agree to "buckle up and put down the cell".
Social media campaign #TeensDriveSafe
A video contest, where students are asked to create a short, fun video to help us spread the word about the importance of seat belt safety and distracted driving. The contest has received over 100 video submissions over the past two years.
(Details are below)

Failure to buckle up plays a role in more motor vehicle fatalities than any other traffic safety-related behavior!
Each day in the U.S., more than 9 people are killed and more than 1,153 people are injured in crashes that are reported to involve a distracted driver!
Text Messaging makes a crash 23 X's more likely to occur!
