Take the pledge....

Take the "Keep Your Mind on the Wheel" Pledge

Our Pledge

Driving while distracted can be more dangerous than driving drunk.
As moms, we want safer roads.
We know the time has come for us all to recognize the risks of distracted driving, to be more responsible and to mind the wheel.

Here is what we pledge:

We pledge to model safe behavior when we drive.
We pledge to set firm house rules on texting and phoning while driving.
We pledge to help spread the word on the dangers of distracted driving.

Here is what we ask for:

We ask for the dangers of distracted driving to be included in drivers’ education classes.
We ask for innovations in technology to help solve the problem.
We ask for laws to make it illegal to text and drive.
We ask for enforcement of existing distracted driving laws and consequences when the laws are broken.
By working together we will make everyone safer.
I took the pledge and Im asking that you will keep all of our famlies safe.
Please go HERE and take the pledge.

Thank you for that, Denise. All drivers should realise that other people get killed because of their addiction to texting or not paying attention to the road.
I sincerely hope that many more people sign up to this pledge.
Big Hugs, and Thank You.

This is great!!

I was actually chastised the other day by my Oldest for not being "10-n-2" at the wheel.

I'm getting something right :-)
