Youthful Drivers


Serious and, often times, fatal crashes are the result of distracted driving. Anytime you take your eyes off the road, your hands off the steering wheel, and/or take your mind off driving, you become a distracted driver.

Resist the urge to text, talk on a cell phone, eat or drink while driving.

WHAT ARE LOCAL TEENS DOING?

Youth all over the state are doing wonderful things to get the word out about distracted driving. Did your school create a message to teens about the dangers of texting and driving or distracted driving. If so, tell us about it. We'd love to share it with other teens around the state. Send us a link to your YouTube video, the PSA, or a .jpg of the artwork.
