Teen Safe Driver Pledge Contest: Be Safe
Nov 29th, 2009 by Liza Wiemer

   

Dont Park Here!

Don't Park Here!

STAY SAFE ON THE ROAD

 

Texting, putting on make-up, making phone calls on your cell, drinking and driving, using drugs and driving, reaching for a snack…  These are just a few things that lead to dangerous, inattentive driving, which could lead to serious accidents on the road – even death.  BE SAFE!  Even if you can’t participate in this contest, make a personal pledge to drive carefully.  If you need to make a call, pull over.  Don’t get into anyone’s vehicle if s/he is drunk.  Eat before you get on the road – avoid eating in your car.  And please, ALWAYS WEAR YOUR SEATBELT!

Right after graduation last year, a young man we knew who had attended our son’s high school got into a car with a drunk driver.  The driver lost control and wrapped the car around a tree.  The boy we were acquainted with died.  Though we did not know this boy well, my heart broke for his family.  Such a waste of precious life.  YOU ARE PRECIOUS!  Please make good choices.  There are people who care – even if you don’t think so.  Trust me, I don’t know you, but I care.  When I hear about the loss of a teen, it hits me hard.

It’s always easy to think that it won’t be you.  Don’t test fate.  Be safe, be smart , live!

Here’s a grizzly YouTube video but it sure does get the point across! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmMNcOWhjWM

If you live in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Georgia, Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Colorado, South Dakota, North Dakota, Utah, Idaho, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon, and Washington then this is a contest for you.  No purchase necessary.  It is sponsored through American Family Insurance.  I happen to know the person who designed the website, so that is how I found out about the contest.  He posted it to his Facebook account.  I am not, nor is anyone in my family insured with American Family so this is not an endorsement for their insurance.  I like the concept of promoting safe driving among teenagers.  So, consider taking the pledge!
