While watching the weekly news, there was a story that accidents and deaths among teen drivers, had actually increased in the past two years. With improvements in car safety and stricter laws requiring fewer teenagers riding in cars together their rates had been decreasing for quite some time. However, in the last couple of years the deaths rates have actually increased among teen drivers about 18%. Auto accidents are the #1 cause of death among teens. As a parent of three young drivers that is an incredibly scary statistic.

My wife recently came across this video and I encourage you to share this with all the young drivers you know.

No texting while driving, no texting while driving, no texting while driving.

I’ll step down from the soapbox now.

Have a great weekend.
