Driving Change for Houston

Turn the Trend. Don’t Tech and Drive.

A quick search online can find you the many notable distinctions the Houston metro area has earned over the years. But the most recent chart topping statistic is no badge of honor. Houston now leads the nation as the most distracted – and deadliest – city behind the wheel. Flying high above Houston’s freeways and rural county roads, every day Memorial Hermann Life Flight® sees the devastating toll these preventable tragedies take on our families, friends and neighbors.

And that’s why Memorial Hermann Life Flight is committed to driving change in our communities.

Take the Driving Change Pledge

I acknowledge that when I'm driving distracted, I'm putting myself, my loved ones and my fellow Houstonians at risk. I pledge to drive change for Houston by educating myself and my loved ones on safe driving behaviors. Learn more about the Live Your DREAMS program below.


Thank you for taking the Driving Change pledge.

Why are you taking the pledge?

To be the difference for my community and my city. One life lost is one life too many. #HoustonStrong

My family, for Kevin, my friends and for myself.

Collaborative Program

The Red Duke Trauma Institute at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center launched the Live Your DREAMS program in 2014 and has since built strong collaborations with key community partners such as the Houston Fire Department to bring distracted driving simulators into school districts across Southeast Texas.

Achieve Your Dreams

The Live Your DREAMS program introduces students to strategies that reduce the initiation of teenage risky behavior, increase parental involvement and encourage peer-to-peer interaction.
