Help put an end to distracted driving, specifically texting or using a phone while driving (which is illegal in California), by joining the California Office of Traffic Safety’s “Go Safely” Distracted Driving Campaign efforts. We are asking California high school students to take part in our PSA Challenge and use your creativity or storytelling skills to make your own Public Service Announcement (PSA). Teen driver crashes are the leading cause of death for young people nationwide.

We want you to take the creative liberty to address what YOU think motivates young adults to drive safer and without distractions. What kind of message do YOU think would work to make a difference to eliminate distracted driving? Tell us your story!
