Put It Down: Focus On Driving
Take the Pledge
The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles encourages motorists to take the pledge and put their cellphones down while driving. The “Put it Down” initiative challenges motorists to keep the roads safe for all Floridians and those who visit our state.
More than 56,000 distracted driving crashes happened last year in Florida alone, and 75% of those crashes were caused by the driver being inattentive behind the wheel. To help keep Florida’s roadways safe, FLHSMV asks motorists to avoid distracted driving. Take the pledge and Put it Down while behind the wheel. And if you are a passenger of a distracted driver, don’t be afraid to ask the driver to Put it Down.
