“Hang up and drive” (driver safety slogan)

"Shut up and drive” is an old saying about what a passenger might say to a driver (especially of the opposite sex). “Hang up and drive” is an anti-cellphone driver safety slogan that has been printed on many images (especially bumper stickers).

My four year old son sings Rhianna’s, “shut up and drive.” Catchy tune. I made him change the lyrics to, “hang up and drive.” We laugh : )
