Raising Awareness of the Risks
Teenagers driving distracted is a huge deal in
society that is very much underrated. What comes
from distracted driving is car accidents which may
cause life-long injuries or even death... far too many
lives have been taken. When you hear of a car
accident involving teenagers driving foolishly, you
only hear OF it instead of hearing about the WAYS
we can all help prevent more from happening! It is
time us citizens of communities all over help make a
THIS OR THAT?
A graphic yet eye-opening video shows how your life can completely
change in a moment on the road.

Driving laws are put in place to help PREVENT accidents! Put your
kid through Drivers Ed where they can truly learn these rules from a
professional behind the wheel and from the books.
Chairwoman of the National Transportation Safety Board Deborah
Hersman was quoted saying“I think too many parents — we're all
guilty of doing as I say not as I do.”
THIS IS A KEY FACTOR IN TEENAGERS
After years of seeing her mom drink her coffee and talk on the phone
while driving, of course Molly will think those things are okay to do
while behind the wheel.
The way to prevent distracted drivers is to especially groom your
own children from their youth to see YOU as their role model and
parent as a safe, responsible driver YOURSELF!
● Keeping teens in track of driving responsibly is only
beneficial to all! The outcome of teens continuing to
drive distracted is only consequences and hurts...
why would we want that for our world?
