Take the Pledge
Crashes due to distracted driving increased 25% in Florida since 2012
As technology becomes more widely-available and more portable, drivers increasingly find themselves facing distractions behind the wheel. These temptations are especially troublesome for our young drivers who are still gathering driving experience, but more likely to check a text while on the road.
Over 38,000 teen drivers were involved in crashes last year in Florida, 57 of which were deadly. Join us at Brown Insurance Services in encouraging young drivers to focus solely on the task at hand and leave their cell phones out of driving. Print out the contract below courtesy of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and discuss with your teen driver and other family members and friends. Take the Pledge and join us in making Florida a safer place to drive.
