Tips for teens: Avoid texting while driving

Tips for Teens:

Be smart. Don't text and drive. No text message is worth being distracted while you drive.

Be in control. Remember it's 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 don't let each other text and drive. Visit to take a pledge not to text and drive, and encourage your friends to do the same.
