Don't Text and Drive

Get Involved

As parents, you're the number one influence on what kind of driver your teens become. Help them develop a lifetime of good driving habits by following these simple steps:

1. Have the Talk

Driving is a serious responsibility. Discuss what it means to be a safe driver with your teen and set ground rules for when they're behind the wheel. If your teen is on the road, they should stay off the phone.

2. Make a Family Pledge

Fill out the form below, and have every member of your family do the same, to commit to distraction-free driving. Set a positive example for your kids by putting your cell phone in the glove compartment every time you drive.

3. Know the Laws in Your State

Many states have Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) laws that include cell phone and texting bans for young drivers. Remind your teen driver that there could be serious consequences for violating these laws - including a delayed or suspended license.
