Celebrate My Drive®

Celebrate My Drive

Keeping Teen drivers safe and alive.
It’s a cause to celebrate!

First, the not-so-good news:
More teens die from car crashes than any other cause.
And the first year of driving is the most dangerous.

The good news: There’s something we all can do about it. And it involves a celebration!

That’s what Celebrate My Drive is about – celebrating this big, new life of freedom that comes with a driver’s license. Part of that life means making smart choices behind the wheel, which is why we’re spreading the message of 2N2® – 2 eyes on the road, 2 hands on the wheel. It’s a simple habit that can reduce distracted driving and help new drivers build confidence on the road.

This party even gives Logan High School a chance at some pretty sweet prizes – like a $100,000 or $25,000 Grant for scholarships, field trips, and other college prep activities. We could even win one of two Grand Prize concerts featuring GRAMMY® Nominated The Band Perry.

Last year, thousands of high schools in communities all over North America joined the celebration, with more than six million safe driving commitments. Every commitment to drive safely will help us reach our goal. PLEASE GET INVOLVED! You can commit/vote once per day beginning on Wednesday and lasting until the following Friday. For details and to vote go to
