    We can direct traffic at our schools and other school events. And have a police officer speak to then about the causes of poor driving habits of of teenagers.

    As a way to improve the safe driving habits of my peers I will always tell them to make sure that they have a seat belt on every time they are in a vehicle.
    No matter where they are sitting in the car I will always make sure everyone has their seat belt on. I also remind my friends to not text and drive or drink and drive as a way to promote safe driving. Distracted driving and driving under the influence is very dangerous and by telling my friends to be careful and to drive safely, I help improve the safe driving habits of my peers.

    My chapter usually allows students to sign banners pledging they will not drive while texting or under the influence. We then hang these banners to remind everyone of the promise they made. There are also posters all over school promoting the cause. The All-State sponsored X-the-Text event is specifically promoted at my school.

    In order to improve the safe driving habits of my peers, I can start by educating myself on safe driving and teen driving statistics. I have been doing this through All State’s resources which are offered on their website. My SAVE chapter, Laney HS SAVE, is working with the All State Foundation to educate our school on the truth about safe driving. Every morning a statistic or fact about safe driving is announced over the intercom. SAVE members also answer questions related to safe driving and what we can do to help by replying to the statistic and question online. We are also promoting All State’s #GetThereSafe campaign through social media. The All State Foundation is coming to Laney High School next week to give a presentation on safe driving.

    Garner Magnet High School SAVE sponsored two Anti-Txting Events (one in the Fall – Nov and one in the Spring – April) to reach our 9th and 10th grade population who are beginning to drive. Then during lunch we reach all students with our X the Txting banner with thumb bands that say “Txting Kills” and their thumb print on the banner. It hangs for the entire month.

    Then the week before prom, in partnership with our local police, fire, EMS, and 911 we hold a JR-SR assembly with speakers and video presentation to stress the dangers of distracted driving and driving under the influence. Then we hold a mock crash which simulates the impact of drunk driving and the consequences of their choices. IMPACT!
