Safety Campaign

Safety Campaign

This Chapter realizes the deadly effects of texting while driving, so in 2012 our students undertook a massive driving safety project. 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!
