Distracted drivers leave a mark.

Go distraction free for 23 hours and leave a different mark.

Join Canadians across the country to be part of the Distraction-Free 23 movement! Sign the pledge promising to sacrifice your personal tech distractions for a full 23 hours May 23 to 24 to help spread the message that distracted driving kills.  

Why 23 hours?

Texting behind the wheel makes you 23 times more likely to crash. DF23 is like a one-day fast from your tech devices to help get the attention of your friends and family. Because if you can go 23 hours without your tech device, surely they can go a few minutes in the car while driving without their tech devices.

Why should I be part of Distraction-Free 23?

When you’re standing alone, getting heard can be tough. BUT, if you join hundreds of others across the country in making the sacrifice to give up some of the things you love for a day – like your phone, tablet, MP3 player, computer, video games, television and pretty much anything tech related – people will pay attention.

There is strength in numbers and together we can send a strong message that calls attention to this serious issue.

That’s pretty much what #DF23 is about.

Distractions behind the wheel kill. In fact, up to 80 per cent of collisions are due to distracted drivers. And fatal collisions caused by distracted drivers are at an all time high. If through your participation you can get just a few people to think twice about driving with distractions, you could help save lives.

When you sign the pledge you can also tell us why you’re pledging (in the form field just below your name). If Allstate Canada shares your story you could win a $100 iTunes gift card.

When is it? Where?

The national DF23 event starts at 6 p.m. (in each respective time zone across the country) on Friday, May 23, and will end 23 hours later on Saturday, May 24, 2013, at 5 p.m.

The only rule is no technology for 23 hours! You can do this at home, with your best friend at his/her house, or wherever works for you. Just remember – you can’t use any tech devices.

At the end of the 23 hours you can connect again.

What can I do in the 23 hours?

Well that’s up to you. Play a board game. Go for a walk. Meet-up with a friend. Go shopping. See a movie. Write a poem using a pen and paper. Just no personal tech devices that you control for 23 hours (i.e. communications or entertainment devices like phones, tablets, computers, video games, televisions etc.).

FOMO? (Fear of missing out?)

When you sign the pledge with your Twitter or Facebook profile, you will be given a badge that you can upload as your profile photo to tell your friends you’re going #DF23. If you sign with an email, download the badge to do it yourself. 

Sign the pledge to be #DF23

Be part of the movement. Sacrifice your cell phone and all other everyday tech distractions for 23 hours to help spread the word. Tell your friends too.

Together, we can make our roads safer for everyone.

Take a breath before you decide that texting is more important than the life you might take while doing so. Pull over to text, eat or look for that cd you dropped. Be aware of the road around you!
