Did you know that traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for American teens? And when it comes to distracted driving, young people are among the most likely to text and talk behind the wheel.
Only in the sense that it KILLS! Of course, there are the half million lucky ones who only get severely injured. So, yeah ... it's a problem.
Eyes off the road, hands off the wheel, mind somewhere else: If what you're doing or thinking isn't focused on the road, it's distracted driving.
Not even maybe. When you're not focused on the road, you're not being safe. In fact, when you're texting while driving, you have the same reaction skills as someone who is legally drunk.
Honestly? YOU. And people like you. Sixteen percent of all distracted driving crashes involve drivers under 20.
You're still distracted, missing the important visual and audio cues that help you avoid a crash.
