Every day, at least 9 Americans die and 100 are injured in distracted driving crashes. Cell phones, dashboard touchscreens, voice commands and other in-vehicle technologies pose a threat to our safety. Just one second of your attention is all takes to change a life forever.

Pledge to be an attentive driver

There is no safe way to use your cell phone while driving - not even hands-free. These tips make it easy to keep your eyes on the road, your hands on the wheel and your mind on the drive.

Before you start driving:
* Program your GPS
* Finish reading/sending texts and emails
* Turn off your phone and put it in the glove box, trunk or your bag

While you are driving:
* Do not use voice commands with your phone or dashboard touchscreen - hands-free systems are just as distracting as handheld
* On longer drives, schedule breaks to park safely and respond to messages
* Social media can wait - no update, tweet or video is worth a life
* Pull over and safely park to take a call or respond to messages
* Do not call or text someone if you know they are driving

Distracted driving is an epidemic.
Be part of the solution. Just Drive!
