#ProtectUrFriendsMADD and State Farm reports: about 1 in 3 youth surveyed have been a passenger with a drinking driver at least once in the past year, and only 20% have intervened to keep their friend(s) from getting in a car with a driver who had been drinking.

That’s why MADD is asking teens this month to take to social media and #ProtectUrFriends. By taking the pledge and snapping a selfie with their friends, they are sending a clear message to their friends that in addition to not drinking before 21, getting in the car with a drinking driver is never okay. Research shows this powerful message could save a teens life.

Teens who participate will be entered into a drawing for an Apple iWatch! Take the pledge and #ProtectUrFriends!
