As reported by AAA, traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens ages 16-19 and six teens are killed each day in crashes that are entirely preventable.
Teen drivers often understand that shooting a quick text message, playing with their radio, or eating while driving is dangerous. However, the overwhelming majority of teen drivers do these things anyway. Almost nine in 10 teenage drivers (86 percent) have driven while distracted, even though 84 percent of teen drivers know it′s dangerous.
“Traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for teen drivers and knowing that a whopping majority of teens admit to driving distracted is very scary,” says Marie Dodds, AAA Oregon/Idaho Director of Government and Public Affairs. Texting while driving is among the riskiest of common driving distractions. Teen drivers are still developing safe driving skills and should limit unnecessary risks.
Texting while driving is among the riskiest of common driving distractions. Despite texting bans in 48 states, smartphone use behind the wheel is a common problem. Research released by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety finds that even though 96 percent of drivers say texting/emailing while driving is a serious or very serious threat to their safety, 39 percent admit to having read a text or email, and 29 percent admit to typing one.
