Teens Invited to Join the Shift

Did you know that nearly 80 percent of all car crashes involve driver distraction? And that teens are involved in car accidents more often than more experienced drivers?

Sobering facts like these are reasons why Erie Insurance is sponsoring Shift for the fourth year in a row.

Shift is a driver safety movement that encourages young drivers to make smart choices behind the wheel. And it does it the fun way, with an interactive website that allows teens to watch, create and share safe driving messages with their peers via social media.

Participating teens and schools have the chance to accumulate points and compete for prizes that include a $10,000 grand prize for schools and $1,500 grand prize for students. The biggest prize of all, though, is learning lifesaving lessons about the dangers of distracted driving.

This year’s contest starts today and runs until November 13. Teens can get started by signing the safe driver pledge at jointheshift.org.
