How to Teach Your Teen Driver to Avoid Distracted Driving
Today’s drivers are prone to distractions – from changing the radio station to texting on the road. Engaging in any type of distraction can take visual, manual and cognitive abilities from the road ahead – and put everyone at risk of a serious accident. Distracted driving has become so regular that it is one of the leading causes for accidents and traffic-related deaths in the United States.
Drivers under the age of 21 are especially vulnerable to distracted driving incidents. Parents of teen drivers can be proactive and reduce the likelihood their teen will engage in distracted driving just by teaching them how to avoid distractions.
