Rural Minnesota communities take the 2N2 pledge
October 17, 2014 by Blandin Foundation
5 seconds. That’s how long your eyes leave the road for every text message you send or receive. Traveling at 55mph, you cover the length of a football field during that time – blindfolded.
Now trade that 5 seconds in for 2N2 – 2 Eyes on the Road. 2 Hands on the Wheel. Teens all around the country are making the 2N2 pledge. In Minnesota, Benson Secondary School, Minnewaska Area High School in Glennwood, Lincoln High School in Thief River Falls, Parkers Prairie High School, and Grand Rapids High School (in our Home community) are all taking part in State Farm’s Celebrate My Drive Campaign. Working with their community to “make the smart choice behind the wheel,” they’re competing with other schools to be recognized as a community committed to safe driving.
Consider making the pledge to support a high school near you. We did!
