Responsible driving is everyone’s responsibility. We want people to arrive at their destinations safely.
In 2000, Verizon Wireless became the first wireless carrier to support state legislation banning hand-held cell phone use while driving. We're still engaged in responsible driving initiatives today, advocating for common-sense legislation and spearheading consumer education efforts to raise awareness about driving responsibly.
We are also leading community programs to educate drivers and encourage responsible driving. For example, the company partnered with Seattle Public High Schools in a campaign (“Save it Seattle: Pledge to Stop Texting and Driving”) enlisting students to pledge to stop texting while driving.
Verizon Telematics offers its “In Drive” service which allows a user to disable or limit some functions on a mobile device when a vehicle is in motion.
