Stop distracted driving, specifically the use of your phone while driving to send texts or messages. Young drivers are often overly confident in their own abilities to text, message, comment on posts, or use apps while driving, but think it's dangerous when others engage in this same behavior. People think they are the exception, but no one is special enough to send, reply, or comment while driving. A lot of texting and driving prevention creative uses scare tactics or preachy messaging that addresses the consequences of messaging while driving (crashes or death), but we want you to address what motivates people to think they can safely use their phones while driving.
