Take the pledge to drive cell free

Take the pledge to drive cell free here! Hands-free is not risk-free. According to the National Safety Council, almost 25% of car crashes involve cell phone use. Driving requires eyes on the road, hands on the wheel, and a brain focused on the task of driving. Drivers engaged in cell phone conversations, handheld or hands-free, are cognitively distracted and can fail to see up to 50% of their driving environment including stop signs, pedestrians, and red lights. Take the pledge today!

About Farm Safety For Just Kids

Farm Safety For Just Kids is a non-profit organization devoted to promoting a safe farm environment to prevent health hazards, injuries, and fatalities to rural children and youth. We produce and distribute educational materials addressing various dangers commonly found in the rural environment. Farm Safety For Just Kids is supported by a chapter network of grassroots volunteers located throughout the United States and Canada. The organization also has part-time outreach coordinators in several states. Chapters, outreach coordinators, and volunteers conduct educational programs to raise awareness about safety and health issues affecting their communities.
