Parents of Teens - Maybe YOU'RE the Culprit!

by Corey Carter

I found this article very interesting.  Sounds hard-to-believe, but parents of teens: how many times have you reminded your teens not to text-and-drive?  Hopefully you've had a conversation with them numerous times about the dangers of doing that. 

After reading the article below - just make sure you are practicing what you preach!! :)  

BURNSVILLE, MN (KDAL) - A new study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety shows that high school aged teens use their cell phones and text while driving less often than adults.  Even though teens are often thought to be the most common offenders, the survey found that adult drivers between 25 and 39 were the most likely to engage in those risky behaviors behind the wheel.  More than one in four motorists reported sending a text or email while driving within the past month.  The least likely age group to use a cell phone while driving were those 60 and over.
