Independence JR/SR High School Ask You to Commit to Safe Driving

September 30, 2014 (Independence, IA) –Celebrate My Drive, powered by State Farm, encourages safe driving with a chance to win big. Independence JR/SR High School staff and students are committed to keeping teens safe on the road. They are asking everyone 14 and older to go to once a day, every day, from October 15 to October 24. The more safe driving commitments our community makes, the better their chance to win a $100,000 grant and a private concert by The Band Perry.

Learning to drive is a big step in life. State Farm and the Jr/Sr High School recognize getting a driver’s license is an important and joyous time. Celebrate My Drive celebrates this milestone with new drivers by encouraging them to make positive choices like driving 2N2: 2 eyes on the road and 2 hands on the wheel.  Go to today to support the Mustangs and safe driving.

About Celebrate My Drive:
Celebrate My Drive is a different approach to a leading public health risk.  Car crashes are the number one killer of teens, and a teen’s first year on the road is the most dangerous. Using research as a guide, State Farm is approaching teen driver safety, a winnable public health battle, by engaging teens while they learn to drive in a supportive and positive way.  It’s a community celebration of safe driving habits emphasizing the benefits of safe choices as teens celebrate the freedom that comes with getting a drivers’ license.
