Safety Topics - Teenage Drivers
In 2015, an AAA study revealed that the majority of auto accidents with teen drivers identified as the at-fault party were caused by distracted driving, primarily texting and driving, though talking on the phone and being distracted by drivers were also among the causes.
However, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, if every state adopted the strictest limitations, the nation would reduce the number of crashes each year by more than 9,500 and save more than 500 lives.
Despite these substantial efforts, the rate of distracted driving accidents among teens continues to rise and a recent survey confirms that nearly half of teen drivers admit to texting behind the wheel frequently.
