Make A Commitment To Safe Driving! #CelebrateMyDrive @StateFarm #Sponsored

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Latina Mom Bloggers and State Farm. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

    It has been amazing seeing the overwhelming response from parents to the Celebrate My Drive campaign from State Farm.  To a certain extent it has put my mind at ease knowing that so many other parents have rallied together to make sure that our children understand the importance of driving safely and adhering to the laws designed to protect young drivers and those on the road with them.

    The time has come for action because, sadly, auto crashes continue to be the number one cause of death for teens in North America.  While being able to drive is an exciting and wonderful rite of passage for many teens, there is great responsibility that comes with having a driver’s license.  By staying positive and celebrating safe driving, we are drawing attention to a cause that will ultimately save many lives.

    Every day this week, October 18-26, you have the opportunity to make daily safe driving commitments on behalf of your high school.  The more commitments made in your school’s name, the better your chances of winning a grant for your high school and maybe even a Kelly Clarkson concert!

Here are some tips for driving safely and celebrating safe driving:

  • Remember “2N2” – Keep your 2 eyes on the road and your 2 hands on the wheel at all times.
  • Don’t text or talk on your phone.  That text or call can wait until later and your life depends on it.
  • Pull over if you are too tired to drive.  Many accidents are caused by tired drivers who fell asleep at the wheel.

    I am encouraging you to make a commitment to safe driving so that you could truly be the life of the party.  Please visit Celebrate My Drive on Facebook to make that commitment online from October 18-26.  You can commit to safe driving daily, once per day.  Your life, and the lives of countless others, depends on this commitment!

  1. Great post,accidents involving a car are to high even in the UK and it puts me off driving its not myself i am worried about but the other drivers around me who maybe are less careful.

  2. Great post. I van’t tell you how many people I see texting and driving. It’s illegal here in MA, although talking and driving isn’t, so we can do that without penalty. A lot of people don’t pay attention, though.

  3. scentednights2002 says

    Great reminder. This is such an important topic to remember!

  4. I have State Farm Insurance, they are the best. Their customer service is the best. Safety is very important!

  5. Daisy Tremorev says

    That’s awesome that they are giving grants to schools!

  6. I am about to start working for State Farm so I am very excited to see that they started such a great program! I see so many people texting and talking on the phone while driving, it is driving me crazy. I would love to pull them out of their car and yell at them. They are a danger to others!

  7. coupontammy says

    I wish kids and adults would realize that that call or text isn’t worth it. I think this is a great program.

  8. This is such a great campaign. I know that it is largely directed towards teens, but I feel like the people who I see swerving on the road because they are texting are usually adults, as frustrating as that is. That’s really cool that Kelly Clarkson has agreed to be the face of the campaign to bring even more awareness to it.

  9. Katherine Bartlett says

    This is such a great campaign! Thanks for the post.

  10. Thank you for the driving tips! It’s important to have car insurance and always observe good driving at all times.

  11. I love this campaign! I am always harping on people to leave their phones in their purse or pocket!

  12. Such a great campaign! We are already talking to our preteen sons about safe driving habits and what to do if they found themselves in a sticky situation.

  13. mail4rosey says

    Pulling over is a good one to stress. So many people are trying to ‘make good time’ that they end up putting everyone in real danger when they get too tired to drive but keep on going.

  14. I’m so afraid of most drivers on the road these days. It’s not just the kids but the adults. TBH I’ve seen more adults driving dangerously, cell phone usage, texting etc than teenagers.

  15. I tell my children all the time DO NOT TEXT and drive. I can not believe the number of people I see doing this.

  16. Lean Lacaba says

    It’s really great that people are spreading the news about safe driving.

  17. There are plenty of teenagers and adults that need to read these tips. Thank you for sharing this great initiative.

  18. Amanda McMahon says

    what a great thing! i know a few schools from back home are in the race to win this

  19. BabsProjects says

    This is a great campaign. It should be used to educate teens and adults alike.

  20. Courtney Pies says

    This is such a great campaign to have! And I love how Kelly Clarkson is helping promote it! Safe driving is definitely a huge deal and I’m glad companies like State Farm are putting the word out there like this!

  21. Dawn Spatulas On Parade says

    Great campaign and I love Kelly Clarkson. I am always on my husband about texting or being on his phone when driving.

  22. Melanie Roberts says

    I have been with State Farm for almost 18 years now and love their Safe driver program, perfect for my Teens and I love their commitment in helping teach kids how to drive Safe…. just an amazing program and a wonderful company…thanks for spreading the word

  23. I worry about my boys who are driving age. I worry about them getting behind the wheel and not remembering all of the smart things that they know.

  24. tannawings says

    This is one of the best campaigns ever. Texting and driving is dangerous nd it isnt just kids it is adults also doing it. It needs to stop.
