As my loyal readers know, one of the issues that I frequently blog about is distracted driving and teen driving safety. You’d think by now that most teens…and parents!… are getting the message that texting and driving can kill you, a passenger or an innocent bystander. Sadly, this isn’t the case. In fact, according to research conducted by Toyota, 62% of teenage girls report using a cell phone while driving. While my daughter isn’t driving yet, I know that she watches my every move and she’ll model my behavior. And even though I don’t text and drive, I do have a tendency to try and reach in my purse for gum or mints as I’m driving or glance at her in the rear-view mirror as she’s talking to me. Even these seemingly insignificant moves can cause a crash and I’m pledging here and now to stop.
In order to help get the word out about the danger of all sorts of distracted driving, and especially texting and driving, Toyota has teamed up with Teen Vogue for the “Arrive in Style” initiative. This is a great opportunity for mothers and daughters to pledge to each other that they won’t text and drive and at the same time, win a chance to receive a monthly beauty box from Teen Vogue. Simply visit the Arrive in Style site before 12/20/13 and take the safe driving pledge. What’s more, if you post an “air driving” photo on the site before 9/3/13, you’ll be entered to win a trip to New York City to be featured in Teen Vogue! In addition to posting the “air driving” photo on the site, share it on Instagram, Pinterest and other sites along with the hashtag #arriveinstyle. Every time you share the pledge on Facebook, you’ll win additional entries for the monthly beauty box giveaway.
My daughter and I were fighting over some of the great products that came in the beauty box but she agreed that I needed the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer more than her!
Also, for every mom and daughter that “Likes” the Safety Mom page and leaves a comment on this blog post that they took the pledge, they’ll be entered to win a beauty box. We’ll randomly select one winner from all the entries but you’ll need to enter by 10/1/13.
