What Can You Do?

Many deaths are due to preventable crashes. Change your driving behavior. Distracted driving is a primary factor in many fatalities. So are impaired driving, driving too fast for conditions and failure to wear a seatbelt. Take responsibility to protect yourself, your passengers, other motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists. Follow these steps every time you get behind the wheel.​​​​​​​

Drive Responsibly. It's Easy​ as 1-2-3

1. Buckle Up

Always wear a seat belt no matter how far you drive [it’s the law]. Make sure passengers buckle up too.

2. Stay Off Phone & Mobile Devices

Drivers, put down the phone and just drive. If possible, shut it off to avoid temptation. And no texting. View Georgia’s Hands-free Law.
