What Does The All-In Challenge Mean?
I challenge myself to not text while driving.
If you text and drive, you’re 23 times more likely to have a car crash. Texting while driving has become the number one driving distraction for many people. Drivers need to be aware of the dangers and keep their attention on the road, not on their cell phones or other mobile devices.
I challenge myself to not speed or drive recklessly.
Obey the speed limits. Going too fast gives you less time to stop or react. Excess speed is one of the main causes of teenage accidents.
I challenge myself to find a safe ride home for me and my friends if anyone has been drinking.
Be responsible, choose a designated driver. Decide who’s going to be doing the driving before you go out, and make sure that person doesn’t drink any alcoholic beverages. Sometimes, however, even the designated driver slips. If nobody in your group is sober, take alternate transportation, such a cab, bus, ride sharing service, or call a friend. Don’t be afraid to take someone else’s car keys away if you think they’ve had too much to drive. If the person gets angry, it’s probably proof you’re doing the right thing.
I challenge myself to always wear my seatbelt and ask others to do the same.
Always wear your seat belt – and make sure all passengers buckle up, too. Don’t try to fit more people in the car than you have seat belts for them to use.
I challenge myself to not drive drowsy.
Drowsiness can totally sneak up on you when you’re driving. For teens, driving late at night between 11pm-2am is a particularly dangerous time for falling asleep at the wheel.
I challenge myself to keep my vehicle safe and properly maintained.
Make sure your car always has gas in it – don’t ride around with the gauge on empty. Putting off an oil change can have a huge effect on your car. Check the coolant level regularly, and make sure if you refill it, it’s the right type. Keep an eye on your brake pad condition, and replace them as soon as they need to be. Check your tire pressure regularly, you’ll help improve your gas mileage too!
