Tips to help you keep the pledge
Download mobile apps that automatically reply to your incoming texts while you're on the road to let people know you're driving and you'll get back to them later.

Assign a designated texter when you're on the road with friends and family. They can respond to incoming texts for your or even just respond with #itcanwait.

Out of sight, out of mind. Put your phone on silent mode or in a place you cannot reach. No phone. No texts.

Call, don't text. If you need to tell someone you're running late while driving, use the approved Bluetooth feature in your car to make the call safely, instead of texting.

Speak up. If you see a friend or family member texting and driving, tell them its not ok and ask them to stop.
