Speak Up Or Else (Against Reckless Driving)

It's time to get your kids in gear about the dangers of reckless driving. Why now? Because reckless driving is the number one killer of kids ages 15-20. And Speak Up Or Else , a website dedicated to informing young drivers about the dangers of distracted driving, is making a lot of noise.

The website is geared toward young drivers – hence the use of the hitherto unknown word, "alertify" – and uses videos featuring celebrity guests to humorously illustrate scenarios in which teens might find themselves when driving with friends.

It also allows users to sign a pledge about safe driving, as well as to send driving-related " celebrity alertifications " to their friends. Additionally, the website features real-life videos and stories about the impact of reckless driving, as well as real facts. ("Eight in 10 teens say that if a friend told them their driving behavior made them uncomfortable, they would listen.")

Do you regularly talk to you kids about distracted driving? Let me know here.
