Keep Your Mind on the Wheel - Sign the Pledge

Mom Sends the Msg is a public service campaign initiated by aimed at reducing distracted driving. Through the power of moms sending the "keep your mind on the wheel" msg, we know we can make the roads safer for our families and communities.

Keep Your Mind on the Wheel - SIGN THE PLEDGE! Head on over to the Mom Sends the Mssg site to add your name to the pledge and get the button.

This is a campaign that means a lot to me, I had a beautiful cousin, a young teacher with so much promise, that lost her life when she was distracted by her cell phone and missed a stop sign and was hit by a school bus.

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.

Until next time..... Lorie
