Eyes on the road, mind on the job.

It’s never safe to TXT while you’re driving, no matter how grown-up you might be.

Use the Vodafone DriveSafe service to help your family stay safe while driving – and teach your teens to use it too, perhaps as a condition of using the car.

DriveSafe auto-replies to incoming TXT messages with a TXT to say you’re driving. Once you get safely where you’re going, you can collect any messages sent to you (or your teens) while Drive Safe was activated.

DriveSafe is quick and easy to use:

  • Before you start driving, free TXT ‘Drive on’ to 760
  • Incoming TXTs will receive this auto-reply: “I’m driving right now. I’ll read your TXT as soon as it is safe to do so. Vodafone DriveSafe.”
  • When you arrive at your destination, free TXT ‘Drive off’ to 760 then check the TXT messages you received.
