make our roads safer

We challenge you. Buckle Up, Phone Down!

ThumbsUpThumbsDownLogos

The Buckle Up Phone Down initiative is simple: 

We want to create a safer environment by decreasing the number of crashes that result in serious injuries and/or fatalities due to unrestrained and distracted drivers. We want to help you be prepared and aware when you drive your car.

How can you make an impact?

Take the Pledge

Simple. Take the pledge to put on your seatbelt and put down your phone when you drive so that your body and your attention stay where they need to be. Or, if you’re a passenger, encourage the person driving to wear their seatbelt and put their phone down.

Wear Your Seatbelt

Wearing a seatbelt is the single most effective thing you can do to protect yourself in a crash. Wearing it appropriately is the best defense you have against mitigating factors like other drivers, nature, road conditions, and accidents.
