Toyota and Teen Vogue: Take the Pledge to “Arrive in Style”

Having a teen driver in the home can make even the calmest of parents a little anxious and uneasy. My 18 year old daughter is a good driver for the most part, but also seems to have her cell phone glued to her ear most of the time. Of course, I worry that she will find a text or phone call more interesting than watching the road – or more importantly, other drivers.

When I learned that Toyota and Teen Vogue were partnering for the “Arrive in Style” initiative, I just knew we had to participate. Driving on the roads these days is stressful enough, but a young, less experienced driver needs to be on their P’s and Q’s even more than usual.

Did you know Toyota found that 62% of teenage girls report using a cell phone while driving?

Scary statistics, huh?! After a close friend of ours was in a horrific car accident years ago while texting and driving, my daughter and I wholeheartedly agreed to take the pledge to drive safely. Unfortunately, accidents do happen, but doing everything you can to prevent one is literally a matter of life and death. I want to make sure my daughter is able to drive for many years to come. And making this pledge is a great start!

    Turn the cell phone off. That way there is no temptation to text and drive or even talk and drive. Hopefully, that will help keep them focused.

  2. heather eg kaufman says:

    Pay attention to your surroundings, especially other drivers!!!

  3. Jessie C. says:

    Never sending texts while driving.

  4. Be a courteous driver, always focus on your driving, always look (instead of just using mirror) when changing lanes.

  5. Ariel Henry says:

    I would tell them to cut out all possible distractions such as cellphones and the radio, so they can give their full attention to driving.

  6. Nataly Carbonell says:

    No texting or using the phone when driving,

  7. Cynthia R says:

    no distractions, not phoning, texting or friends

  8. Jessica To says:

    Pay attention to other drivers and put your phone away.

  9. I tell them to always be aware of what is happening around them, to keep a safe distance from the car in front of them in case the other car stops short, and of course…no telephone (talking or texting).

  10. I see so many people young and old talking and texting on cell phones when driving. It’s so unsafe. If I am driving on biz I just pull over if a call comes in or I need to send a client a text. Great pledge idea!

  11. don’t text and drive

  12. Barbara Montag says:

    Turn your cell phone off so not tempted to answer it while driving.
    Thank you.

    To always pay attention to the road and other drivers. Also, to make sure she never ever texts and drives.
