Don’t Text and Drive

Safety Tips for teens and adults:


Tips for Teens:

  • Be smart. Do not text and drive. No text message is worth being distracted while you drive. 
  • Be in control. Remember it is your phone. You decide if and when to send and read texts so take control. Consider turning your phone off, setting it to silent or even storing it in the glove box before hitting the road.
  • Be caring. Never send a text message to a friend who is driving to meet you, or to anyone you know is likely behind the wheel.
  • Be a BFF. Friends do not let each other text and drive.

Tips for Adults:

  • Be a resource. Share information with your teen about the risks of texting while driving.
  • Be an example. Do not send the wrong message by texting while you drive. Your teen will follow your example.
  • Be caring. Do not send a text when you know your teen is driving. Wait for them to call or text you once they have arrived safely at their destination.
  • Be aware. Know your options. Most mobile-phone service providers offer parents an easy way to manage their teen’s cell phone and text messaging activity.
Driving Simulator Tour
