Stay Alive – Don’t Text & Drive!      pledge      resume

Thanks for visiting us at the Clemson Student Chapter of ITE! This Chapter realizes the deadly effects of texting while driving, so our students are undertaking a massive driving safety project in 2012. As a result, this Chapter hopes to promote the idea of “no texting while driving” both on Clemson University’s campus as well as at colleges and high schools throughout the country. To do this, the Chapter has created and ordered 11,000 silicon rubber wristbands marked with the phrase “Stay Alive – Don’t Text & Drive.” Check out the rest of the website, including how to get your own wristband, a pledge you can make, some shocking statistics, and several videos that could change your mind about your driving habits!  Learn more about the safety campaign >>  Get a no texting while driving wristband >>
