If teens don’t always listen to their parents, maybe they’ll listen to other teens.
High school students across Idaho were invited to create their own videos or memes to illustrate the dangers of distracted driving.
The goal? To raise awareness of the
three main types of distracted driving:
Manual: Taking your hands off the wheel
Visual: Taking your eyes off the road
Cognitive: Taking your mind off what you're doing.
While we know news articles and firsthand experiences
tell an impactful story, we like the approach of letting teens take the mic and use a little creativity to inspire safe driving.

*Note for parents wondering what in the world a “meme” is – you’d know one if you saw it. Take the image in this post for example (photo credit:
