Keep Your Mind on the Wheel.
I’ve seen dozens of people texting while driving and I’ll admit this – I’ve texted while driving too and I’m ashamed of admitting it BUT I took the pledge to never do it again and I haven’t.  If I receive a text, I’ll ignore it and wait until I can reply back when I am done driving or after I’ve pulled over to a safe place, like a parking lot.

Since I took the pledge, I want you all to take the pledge as well.  You don’t have to do anything but promise yourself that when you receive a text, whether its important or not, to wait until you have pulled over safely.

Below is the official pledge created by TheMotherhood:

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.

Spread the word to everyone!!! For more information, click HERE.
