The Goal. To require all existing social media companies to modify their apps in order to reduce and prevent road accidents caused by app-related activities.

The Problem. In addition to texting and calling, drivers have found a new way to use their phone while driving – and in turn endanger themselves and the lives of others – by interacting with their social media apps. As we all know, distracted driving is one of the most common causes of accidents in the road, accounting for more than 3,000 deaths and 430,000 injuries in the United States every year. With these alarming numbers, it’s critical that social media companies take part in preventing these accidents by making improvements on their apps.

The Solution. With access to billions of users worldwide, it is the responsibility of social media companies to promote safe driving. First, they must release a public statement that they do not tolerate the use of their apps while driving. Second, they must be willing to modify their apps so that every time it is opened, there will be a warning against distracted driving. Lastly, the apps must be blocked when in a moving vehicle.

FB Bureau has started this petition in an effort to stop distracted driving. We won’t be able to win this without your help, so we encourage you to sign this petition and spread the word.
