I am involved because I want to get the word out there to stop texting, getting distracted, drinking, etc. I want to help save lives not only at my school, but all over the world.
Don’t you agree that distracted drivers are just CRZY? Not only are they CRZY for taking such a huge risk, but they drive CRZY when they don’t pay attention to the road. You’ve seen them – they swerve all over, they can’t keep a consistent speed, they miss traffic signals and warning signs, and have too many close calls (if they even see them) – they are CRZY!
We want to stop these CRZY habits and let them know just how CRZY they are for doing something they know they shouldn’t be doing and putting us ALL at risk for car crashes.
The 2014 Teens in the Driver Seat Summit has an official date and we would love to see you there! We will be gathering May 18 -20, 2014 at the Hilton San Antonio Hill Country Hotel & Spa in San Antonio, Texas. Register NOW!
Texas has seen a year-over-year decline in 16 to 19 year-old driver fatalities, representing a 53% reduction for 16-to-19 year-olds (see graph). Texas is the only state where this has happened. This is something we should all be proud to claim we helped with!
Teens in the Driver Seat® offers the annual Driving the Message Contest to California, Connecticut, Georgia, Nebraska and Texas students to encourage teens to speak up and save a life. Sponsored by State Farm and AAA.
What is the contest that awards schools for spreading the message about safe driving and saving lives? It’s the Annual Teens in the Driver Seat Cup! Points are awarded for being active and participating in the program. How easy is that?!? Well, get your game face on and take a look at your state’s rules and point system and get McCrackin; there are points to be earned and cash and prizes to be won!
