Parents and teens are encouraged to visit to learn about the dangers of distracted driving, to ask parents to communicate safe driving expectations with their young drivers, to ask kids to commit to safe driving practices, and to take the Drive Safe Detroit Pledge. As an incentive for families and school communities to get involved, start the conversation and share on social media, Dick Genthe Chevrolet will donate $10,000 to the high school with the greatest participation through June 2nd.

“These days, teen drivers have more distractions than ever that increase their odds of harm on the road,” said Bruce Genthe, President at Dick Genthe Chevrolet. “We think it’s critical for teenagers, their parents and the community to have ongoing conversations about safe driving. We hope the Drive Safe Detroit Pledge campaign assists as a useful tool for parents to set high standards for and to place importance of safe driving practices. Ultimately, our goal through this campaign is to save lives and decrease harm done to our teenage drivers.”

With the help of the Dick Genthe Chevrolet Drive Safe Teen Driver Contract, teens will better understand and more truly commit to safe driving practices.
