Teen singer Justin Bieber wants all of his fans to be safe — especially when driving.
Earlier today, Justin announced the official launch of a campaign designed to encourage people to text responsibly. The PhoneGuard application, called Drive Safe™, disables texting, emailing and keyboard functions of your phone if you’re driving faster than 10 MPH.
The campaign is also working with the Remember Alex Brown Foundation. She was a teenager who lost her life as a result of texting and driving at the same time.
Justin said, “As a 17-year-old driver, I am aware of the countless distractions that we teenagers face on the road, and texting is one that is preventable. There are too many young people, like Alex Brown, whom we’ve lost because of texting while driving, and it is my hope that, through this partnership with PhoneGuard, we will raise awareness of this issue and create safer conditions for everyone on the road.”
Go Justin! We love it when celebrities are using their fame for such good causes. Good for him. This is something that we can definitely get behind. So many lives are lost by distractions on the road, but this is something that we can control.
