Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of teen crashes and cell phone use is a major contributor. However, another distracted driving behavior leading to teen car accidents is passenger interaction. Studies show that a teen’s chances of getting into an accident increase with each additional teenage passenger in the car.
Car crashes are the number one killer of teens in the United States and a leading cause of death in countries around the world. Youth-led campaigns like Global Youth Traffic Safety Month (GYTSM) promote safe teen driving through a peer-to-peer model.
The warm weather means BBQs, swim parties and many other fun activities and celebrations, often involving alcoholic beverages â€¦ leading to inebriated drivers on our Kansas City roadways.
Having a driver’s license opens up a whole new world of responsibilities for a teenage driver. Parents and other adults in a teen’s life can be a role model, teaching them to be safe, responsible drivers.
