Distracted driving is a major issue on today’s roadways and a lot of teenage drivers are guilty of this dangerous habit. Teenage drivers do not have a lot of experience behind the wheel, and to make matters worse, many drive distracted on top of that. Texting and driving is one of the major forms of distracted driving, and teens surveyed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have admitted to not only being guilty of this, but to knowing it’s dangerous but still doing it.
The above answers that young drivers gave in regards to distracted driving are very concerning. Parents must stress the importance of safe driving to their teenage drivers, and set a good example themselves when they are behind the wheel.
