Engaged driving

Drive well, Idaho. Be in the moment and free from distractions.

Safe drivers create safer communities.

When you’re behind the wheel, focusing on the road up ahead is the most important thing you can do. It can be a challenge — kids, phones, work, life — we all have a lot going on. But when we keep our eyes and mind engaged and distractions put aside, we make sure everyone on the road stays safe. Let’s commit to protecting ourselves and our fellow drivers, and do our best to be in the moment on the road.

I’m in the moment when I’m behind the wheel.

We have more adventures to get to, and more places to explore. Life is distracting enough — let’s stay focused on the road and make sure everyone gets to where they’re going.

I drive engaged for myself, my family and my community. Texts and calls can wait until I’m parked.

The change starts with me.

Let’s pass good driving habits and behaviors to the next generation. When we drive engaged, we’re setting good examples for our families — and fellow drivers.

Engaged driving is a responsibility we all share.

Like many things in life, driving requires our full attention. Let’s show our families and friends that we’re committed to driving free from distractions. Drive well.
