Did you know that April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month? (Don’t worry — not many people in St. Louis do.)
We shouldn’t need a dedicated month to publicly condemn distracted driving, yet data clearly shows that distracted driving is a growing epidemic, particularly among teenage drivers who are already prone to make mistakes on the road. Approximately 6 out of 10 teen car crashes are caused by a distracted driver. As a parent, these sobering stats may have you questioning whether to even buy your teen his first car.
For those worried parents, we suggest reviewing these tips with your teenager and be sure to take the pledge to remain distraction-free through April (and the other 11 months of the year).
