Justin Bieber Teams Up With PhoneGuard to Stop Texting While Driving

Share Tweet Pin It Email

Justin Bieber has been very vocal about preventing texting while driving, and now the 17-year-old is teaming up with PhoneGuard to help drive his message home.

"It is tragic that almost on a daily basis there are reports of deaths and severe injuries caused by drivers who are texting and driving," he said in a statement. "We need to change the attitudes in our society toward texting and driving and I am making it one of my personal goals to make this happen."
As Beliebers know, Justin has a nightly ritual that involves spreading the word about the dangers of the act. "Every night we perform we have a banner that goes up that says 'Don't Text and Drive' so it really means a lot to me," he added. "We are planning to continue to give $1 from every ticket sold to this cause and the addition of PhoneGuard to this team will help us expand our efforts even further."

Justin will participate in a series of promotions with the software company, which is the maker of Drive Safe, a mobile app that disables texting and email functions when users are in a car moving faster than 10 miles per hour.

In addition to raising awareness, the campaign will help raise funds for charities like the Alex Brown Foundation, an organization named after a Texas teen who tragically lost her life to texting while driving.

The Browns have a special place in Justin's heart -- as you may remember, the singer appeared on ABC to reinforce his message and help surprise the Brown family on a recent episode of 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.'
