checked out your website, how inspirational! (and a simple message) My
two youngest kids were in a horrific car accident last June on their way
back from volunteering at vacation bible school when they were t-boned
by another car who failed to stop at a atop sign going 75 MPH. The car
rolled over several times before landing in a ditch. God had angels
working overtime that day, because other than bruises and a few cuts and
a minor knee injury, they came out fine. God bless you with your
ministry bringing awareness to teens on the dangers of driving."
an instant a friend lost his life and many lives were changed. I never
before thought it could be me on the news, me in prison and yet here I
am. I chose to drink and drive. A family lost their son, their nephew
and their brother. Think twice before you get behind the wheel, because
as I sit here in this cell...I'll tell you that it's not worth it."
"Life can change in an instant for you and for others. I Promise."
"At North we focus on making responsible choices, and
this program goes along with that. With the freedoms that are given
senior year of high school I lost my best friend Luke Davis due to a
drinking and driving accident. To this day he still lives in my heart
and I can't help but think of all the great times that we had
together. I hope that being a teen I can share my message to
others about being safe and being smart when it comes making decisions
about that. I hope to live my life to the fullest and for Luke.
I am so impressed with what you have done. It is a
phenomenal idea. My nephew is just now taking his Driver's Ed. course
back in New Mexico. This will be perfect for him and his family. I am
getting one for my husband and myself as well, as we have little guys
(10 & 8) and we think it'll be a great visual reminder for them to
see us taking the privilege of driving very seriously, as they should
when they are ready to drive. They already love to check our speed and
make sure we wear seat belts and stay off the cell phone; it will be
icing on the cake to have this teardrop that we can be held accountable
I am the mother of a teen who was responsible for a drinking and driving accident where an innocent victim lost their life. I never want anyone to feel the pain that the victim's family has felt, that I have felt, and the remorse that my teen will always live with. I feel the I Promise program communicates to teens on an emotional level how serious the consequences of thoughtless actions can be.

I am a proud sponsor and promote the I Promise teardrops at Brown's Driving School. We are excited about how it can change lives and help our drivers become more responsible on the road and in life.

I look at it when I drive and the teardrop reminds me of other teenagers who have died from drinking and driving or being unsafe. I do not want to harm anyone else because of my poor decision.
I had my life saved in high school because I was wearing my seatbelt. A car ran a red light and smashed right into me as I was turning left spinning the car 180 degrees. As the Jaws of Life cut me out of the car I was extremely thankful to not have broken my legs and gone through the windshield. The officer said this would have happened if we had not being wearing our seatbelts. I'm thankful I did and am glad I made the promise to continue to wear it.
I have a "I Promise" teardrop hanging from my car mirror and it really helps to remind me not to speed. Some of my friends have had tickets and paid a lot of money because of it. It reminds me to be more careful.

This program can have a great impact. Several years ago I lost a student athlete in a car accident. You won't only hurt yourself! Be careful when you get behind the wheel.

I am very grateful for the "I Promise"
program and what it represents for our young people. It gave me the
opportunity to have another very serious conversation with my daughter
about the life effects of not keeping that promise. She was especially
moved by Jesse's story and the power of having an "I Promise"
covenant between parents and friends. Thank you for creating the program
and presenting it to our children.
As personal viewers of the “I Promise” message
and recipients of the “I Promise” pendant, we are hopeful that this
true story will reach teenagers on an enormous-scale. Too many
precious lives have been lost through drinking and driving.
The “I Promise” (not to drink and drive) pendant is a life-saving
lesson and symbol for our children … a lesson they will remember for
their lifetime. We encourage all of you to get this message out to
your adolescent children … Your Children Are Worth It !
As the father of 2 teenage drivers, I was happy to
purchase several I Promise medallions. I gave one to each of my kids, and
kept one for myself. I have been guilty of using my cell phone for calls
and even text messages while driving. Having this hang from my rear view
mirror has really been a good reminder to NOT text while driving. It
also has been a nice conversation piece when I have passengers in my car.
I don’t know ANYBODY that is not in favor of using safety!
