A bond between drivers on the road; promising to drive distraction-free in order to protect each other and the community.
Raksha Bandhan is an Indian festival that commemorates a centuries-old tradition in which a sister ties a ceremonial band on her brother’s wrist and prays for his protection and safety. The brother reciprocates with a pledge to be there for her whenever she needs him. A simple band, therefore, binds brothers and sisters in an inseparable bond.
Much like this bond between brother and sister, let us commit to a bond of protection with other drivers who share the road with us.
Let us celebrate Distraction-Free Driving Virtually in 2020.
Since the inception of the Raksha Walk/5K Run in 2009, all Minnesota Governors proclaimed the day of Raksha Walk as the Distraction-Free Driving Awareness Day in the State of Minnesota.
