Buckle Up Phone Down Reaches 10 Thousand Pledges

More than 10 thousand people have accepted the Buckle Up Phone Down Challenge since the program was created in 2017.

The program is aimed at addressing the two most impactful actions a driver can take to prevent crashes, or survive if one occurs.


According to the Missouri Department of Transportation and Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety, there were 391 known fatality crashes involving those not wearing a seat belt last year. Additionally, drivers using cell phones were involved in 2,580 crashes in 2017 alone.

The goal is to have 20 thousand pledges by 2020.
