Eliminate Texting & Driving - $2,000 USD Total Compensation

We all know that texting and driving is dangerous and has become a major cause of auto accidents, injuries and deaths. Teens are especially affected by this phenomenon with 97% saying it is dangerous, yet 43% admitting to texting while driving.

Full Description

The goal of this request is to develop ideas through crowdsourcing and co-creation to help save lives by preventing texting and driving.  Your solution can stem from technological advances, proposed changes in the law, modified personal habits, parental involvement, education or any other possible scenario to deter people from texting and driving. 

Here are some facts about texting and driving (source Forbes): 

  • It causes 11 teen deaths every day
  • It causes 25% of all accidents (1.6 million per year)
  • It is 6X more dangerous that driving while intoxicated
  • It is still legal in 10 states to text and drive
  • Not only a teen problem with 47% of adults admitting to texting while driving  


Texting and driving has received widespread attention from companies like AT&T and celebrities such as Justin Bieber but still remains a growing problem.  Let’s work together to identify new ways to eliminate texting and driving among our population and reduce the pain caused when families lose loved ones to these senseless tragedies. 

See example photos of the results of texting and driving and AT&T’s public service videos to the left under “RFI Information”.
