Teens Stop Texting and Driving

June is national safety month and many organizations are helping promote safety awareness. The National Safety Counsel, at www.nsc.org, encourages organizations to promote education of safe behaviors surrounding preventable injuries every June.

The low hanging fruit is stopping texting while driving and your teen is likely doing this.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that 41% of your teens have texted or emailed while driving. This risky behavior leads to thousands of injures and deaths every year. Injures resulting from texting while driving are completely preventable. Please talk to your teen drivers about the risks of driving while texting and riding in a car where the driver is texting.

I applaud Volkswagen for their recent commercial highlighting the dangers of texting while driving.

Watch it below and show it to your teen driver.
