Distracted driving includes everything from changing a song on your mp3 player and eating a snack to talking on your cell phone and texting. Although you may think you can do it all when driving, the reality is that driving distracted can kill, whether it is the first time or the 50th time you are taking that risk. Help drive change by taking the pledge to put your distractions away before you drive!
In an ongoing effort to combat the ever-growing issue of distracted driving, The UPS Foundation, which governs corporate citizenship and UPS’s philanthropic programs, offers UPS Road Code, a national program to teach safe driving techniques to teens. The Foundation teamed up with Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) and established the program on a small scale in local Clubs across 10 cities. Continuing to drive change across the country, the highly successful UPS Road Code program is currently available in 52 Boys & Girls Clubs throughout 36 U.S. cities and reaches 5,200 teenagers per year.
