WHAT: Social media contest “Picture It… Who Rides With You?” launched.

The contest is part of the agency’s plan to utilize social media and technology to connect with residents and visitors about services, tax obligations and driver safety. Florida drivers are invited to share photos on Twitter and Instagram showing their favorite auto passenger. Whether it’s your baby, briefcase, pooch or boogie board, the most creative pics win. Participants are also encouraged to post their images on Twitter or Instagram including the handle @TAXPBC and hashtag #PBCDrive. Winners drive away with an emergency roadside kit, universal smart phone charger and more.

Florida drivers ages 18 and up can enter and read contest details at www.pbctax.net/contest.

WHEN: The contest runs from April 20 through July 20, 2016.

WHY:    The contest is part of a new driver safety initiative utilizing social media to connect with drivers. According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, distracted driving crashes in Palm Beach County increased by nearly a third between 2012 and 2015. As the sole driver license issuing agency, we advocate safe driving decisions.
