Justin Bieber Urges Fans Not To Text And Drive With New Campaign!

| Filed under: InspirationJustin Bieber

justin bieber against driving and texting

Thanks for spreading the word, Biebs!

Today, Justin Bieber announced the launch of a new campaign which will promote responsible text messaging through a new app, which disables texting, emailing, and keyboard functions if you're driving faster than 10 miles per hour! WONDERFUL!

In his campaign, Justin will be working alongside the Remember Alex Brown Foundation, which was organized by the family of teen Alex Brown who died tragically because she was texting while driving.

Here's what Justin had to say about his campaign:

"As a 17-year-old driver, I am aware of the countless distractions that we teenagers face on the road, and texting is one that is preventable. There are too many young people, like Alex Brown, whom we've lost because of texting while driving, and it is my hope that, through this partnership with PhoneGuard, we will raise awareness of this issue and create safer conditions for everyone on the road."

We cannot emphasize enough how important an issue this is! We fully support Justin's campaign, and we hope it encourages people of all ages to text responsibly.

    I think it has a chance of doing wonders for teenage girls. Adults or college kids probably won't give a crap, but this should help kids!

  2. 2

    Haha Like any of his fans are old enough to drive? There all between the ages of 5-13 jeez this is stupid..

  3. 3

    What a joke. Considering that only tweens listen to his shitty music - he has no audience for this commercial. He already is a has been - watch - his time has come and gone.

  4. 4

    hahahaa just realized it's justin not justine and hes a boy

    Boy, the older he gets the more and more he looks like a young lesbian. Someone needs to check their estrogen levels.

  7. 7

    Uh does it matter what the age of his fanbase is? uh NO. you are all reading this, so that's what matters. personally I am no fan (at all) but he has the right message.
    p.s. you are all dumbasses

    Re: i-am-awesome101 – the age of his fan base does matter because its a message to HIS FANS its like sesame street starts saying "DONT DRINK AND DRIVE GUYS :) " and no shit were gunna be reading this its on Perez's blog we come to READ the articles the difference is reading them and actually doing what the article says -___-

  9. 9

    Bless his heart. Is he over 5 feet 5 inches?

  10. 10

    Most of his fans aren't old enough to drive.

  11. 11

    WHO is this little girl … ?

    Re: Jesyca123 – I was just going to say that, but scrolled the comments. You beat me to it, Jesyca123!

  13. 13

    Even when he does something good, all the haters line up to call him down. Sad people have to hate on a 17-year-old to make themselves feel better.

  14. 14

    He looks more and more like a lesbian every time I see him. Is it that tween girls like femine guys, or do they really just wanna be with other girls? And don't even gets started on guys that dig him.

  15. 15

    I only made an account so i could comment on this. I think it's great what Justin's doing… it might actually knock some sense into some people and keep our roads safer. Who are all you people to judge him anyway? At least he's doing something good for people out there, unlike most celebrities these days who mostly care about themselves and their addictions! If there's anyone that has actually made a huge impact on this world by supporting so many campaigns… it's this guy!

  16. 16

    Wow really? He's actually doing something beneficial and all anyone can say is "he looks like a lesbian." It doesn't matter what people look like, its what they're doing that matters. Not all his fans are five years old. I know many people who, along with myself, are over 18 and are big fans. Haters.

  17. 17

    Even if he does look like a lesbian, I still think that it's an amazing campaign. It may just be a small thing in a large world, but i'm sure it will get noticed w/ a guy like Justin representing it. It's like what I-am-awesome101 said, people that aren't even fans of his are going to read it, like us. Hell, they might even go out and get the app!

    Good for you, Justin.

  18. 18

    omygosh people are sooo mean!!!all i have to say is atleast he's doing something unlike YOU sitting infront of your computer all day!!!!and actually he doesn't only have little fans he has older fans too!!!so stopp hating and get a lifee!!!and im not sum lil fan im an 18 year old who respects Justin for his work:)

  19. 19

    are his fans old enough to drive?

  20. 20

    Re: leyyylooo:) – And like omg ppl like stop hatin like please like its hurting his feeling omg stop drinking haterade like please.

    Re: kimkardashh – Your icon name say " kimmkardash" therefore you're a fucking idiot and your opinion doesn't matter.

    Re: HILRAY – that sounded like a joke a 4th grader would make but I still liked it

  23. 23

    OMG, I forget that 16 & 17 year olds in America drive cars!! THAT Is scary and combined with texting!!! How about a law where you have to be 18 to drive?? That would make things MUCH safer!!

  24. 24

    Is this kid EVER going to go through puberty??

  25. Rigby says – reply to this


    Ugh, the tween and lesbian comments are sooooo dumb! While these are facts - his fan base and his effeminate appearance (I guess a short hair cut is quid pro quo for Lesbians? Or Lesbians want to be butch but their girls? This shit is so tired)… writing the same tired comment over and over which you have seen over and over…just say it to yourself if you can't come up with something else. Because no1 cuuurrr here to see those remarks repeated 1,000 times.

    In other news, good campaign for a good cause. Texting and driving is TERRIFYING to watch happen while you're in a car. It should be as harsh a penalty as drinking and driving. It's that serious.

    What I really have wanted to say….is this kid an asshole? He looks like one. Everything about him screams Dick Head to me. Anyone know? It's not that I care, it's just Heaven forbid he is on my screen or *shudder* brought up in conversation, I can feel justified saying that kid is an asshole. And for FUCK'S SAKE get new jeans and new shows! They're more tired than the comments!

  26. 26

    his fans aren't even old enough to drive

  27. 27

    Love how these kids are cute now, when they're young. Selena Gomez will be smoking hot as she gets older, however this kid will be bald and completely goofy looking in a few years. I bet the ranch on it. Just look at his grandfather. Baldness skips a generation for the most part. He'll be balding in just a couple years. Same thing happened to the MEGA TEENAGE HEARTHROB of the 70's. He made Bieber look like an amateur. Leif Garret.

    Re: Candy Barr – Hehe sorry but i guess great minds think alike :P

  29. 29

    Good idea, but I'm guessing it gauges the speed at which you're moving? Or is in plugged into the car somehow? Because if it's the first - what if you're in the car but not driving?

    And as long as it works - and takes the above flaw into consideration - it shouldn't be an application, because those who want to text and drive wont download it. It should be a mandatory installation.

    He's pretty like a girl.

    Re: Jesyca123 – I'm not…

    Re: Knicks15 – WOW your older than 13 and you like Justin Bieber?! Hunny get your ears checked is all I can say..

  33. 33

    I am DISGUSTED with the people coming here just to talk sh!t about bieber & what he does. I don't even like him at all but seriously people? Who giveas a fawk about his music os his age? Or even his looks? He IS doin somethin right & he IS sending a really good message wich is obviously not just for his fans (who most of them are crazy teenage girls but whatever) like, when did he even mentioned his fans here? Did her said “oh dis is just for my fans blah blah blah” ? NO, dis is a message for anybody thats old ebough to drive (obviously) like, u can't be that retarded to say dis is just for his fans. Like seriously, yall really need to lear how to respect other & what they do. And btw, he is old enough to drive (even though he looks like he's 5) he is 17 & he's got probably like 5 cars so yall really need to stfu k.

  34. 34

    Wow this is so true…well said jessica..well said… ;) Re: Jessica1895

  35. 35

    Oh my God, some of the people below me are pathetic. It clearly isn't just made for his fanbase, but for all teenagers. Also, not all of his fanbase are tweens, some are also young adults, etc.

  36. 36

    I have this to say…my car was recently totaled by a teen who was texting while driving. thank god nobody was hurt, and the only thing this gal had to say when she got out of her car to sit on the curb because she was so shaken up was "can somebody get my phone so i can finish my text." i almost crapped myself! Let's hope this helps then.

  37. 37

    well he should not feather his bangs while he is behind the wheel!

    Re: adg100 – wow, you really think you're very smart when you spit out facts like "baldness skips one generation". Too bad you didn't know that Bruce Dale is his grandfather in every possible way, apart from biologically.
