Educators play a crucial role in helping students develop safe driving habits that can last a lifetime. Here’s how you can help students get the message on distracted driving:
Run a Pledge Drive.
Get the pledge form and set up a table outside classrooms, in your cafeteria, or at a sports event. Give people the facts on distracted driving and help them commit to phone-free driving.
Spread the Word.
Hang posters in the hallways and incorporate messages or videos about distracted driving into your morning announcements. Encourage the school newspaper to run an article about the dangers of texting and cell phone use behind the wheel.
Get Parents Involved.
Reinforce your safe driving message by sending a letter home to parents that urges them to talk about the dangers of distracted driving with their teens.
