We started our Decide to Drive campaign in 2015 with a powerful message from our founder, Mitch Permuy. Two years later, we remain dedicated to saving lives, and we've even recruited the next generation of the PDI family to help us share our story and mission with you.
2015: FOUNDER LAUNCHES CAMPAIGN
2017: NEXT GENERATION OF PDI FAMILY
Power of 1 is about the power of one decision, one action, one united team... one saved life. It’s about how the decisions we make every day impact us as individuals, impact our families, our friends and the communities we serve.
Driving comes with great responsibility, and each of us has the power to make a positive change and a powerful commitment to safety every time we get behind the wheel. Make the one decision not to text while driving, the one decision not to email while driving and the one decision not to drink and drive.
One decision can change everything. Decide to drive.–Mitch Permuy Founder & Owner of Power Design
Every year distracted driving leads to the injury of approximately 400,000 Americans
— and more than 3,000 fatalities. Impaired driving leads to another 10,000 fatalities.
One safe driver has the power to save lives. Pledge to never leave driving to chance.
I promise to drive safe and sober, and to protect lives by encouraging
my friends and family to not drive while distracted or impaired.
I pledge to not leave safety to chance.
We are proud to announce that we reached our goal of 1,000 pledges on 9.11.15 and have donated $10,000 to the End Distracted Driving charity through Project V5!
The time it takes to read one text message at 55 mph is equivalent to
driving the length of an entire football field... blindfolded.
