Buckle Up – Phone Down A Safety Challenge That Can Make A Difference

Join the 2,114 people (292 of whom represent businesses) who have taken the Missouri Dept. of Transportation’s challenge to take the pledge to: Buckle Up – Phone Down.

The challenge is simple: when you get into any vehicle, buckle up your safety belt. If you are a driver, put the cellphone down. Turn it off if you have to.

Sign up yourself and challenge those you know at home, work, school or in your community to join you in buckling up and putting your phone down, every time you drive!

Keep your eyes open for upcoming outreach efforts that will educate motorists on these important issues. Current Missouri law regarding cell phone usage only pertains to drivers age 21 and younger, and seat belt usage is a secondary law. Legislation is proposed that will strengthen these laws and help keep you and your loved ones safer on Missouri’s roadways.
