Help Stop Teen Distracted Driving Accidents in Ontario - Sign the Pledge

Distracted driving is one of the most common causes of car accidents in Ontario cities such as Kingston, Ottawa or Whitby. Dangerous distracted driving behaviours include the following:

  • texting while driving,
  • talking on the phone while driving,
  • putting make-up on while driving,
  • eating while driving, and
  • inputting information in a GPS system.

Teen drivers learn safe driving behavior years before they actually start driving. It starts with their parents, who have to set good examples for their children. Parents play an important role in preventing teen car accidents. When young children see their parents talk or text on the phone while driving from a young age, they think that distracted driving is acceptable driving behaviour. Later, when parents talk to their teen drivers about the dangers of distracted driving, it may be too late. Their children may think if it's okay for their parents to do it, why can't they? Thus, it is important for parents to be cognizant of their driving habits. They need to refrain from talking or texting on the phone while driving. In addition to setting good examples, parents also need to talk to their children about the dangers of distracted driving. They can also ask their children to sign a safe driving pledge to make Ontario roads safer for everyone.

Below is a pledge parents can discuss with their teen drivers. The pledge is also available for parents to print.

  • I will not use a Bluetooth to talk on the phone while driving.

  • I will not eat while driving.
  • I will not reach down or reach back to get something if something drops to the floor while driving.
  • I will not type information into a GPS system while driving.

I promise that I will do the following before I start driving:

  • I will turn off my cell phone.
  • I will put my phone in the glove compartment.

Consequences of Distracted Driving in Ontario
