Hello Community Partners!
Join us for April’s National Distracted Driving Awareness Month with our fun and engaging “Be Thumbody” social media campaign. Together, we can continue to work to stop the number one killer of teens in the US—car crashes, particularly those caused by distracted driving. Crashes due to distracted driving are 100% preventable. “Be Thumbody” and be part of the solution!
Everything you need to “speak up” with us during National Distracted Driving Awareness Month (NDDAM) is available at speakup4safety.org/nddam. Use hashtags #BeThumbody #NDDAM, and tag @impactdrivers (Instagram/Twitter) and @impactteendrivers (Facebook).
