This week with two weeks of full summer fun ahead, I think it is important to talk about being safe on the roads.
Distracted Driving month was back in April, but truthfully any and every month needs to be distracted driving month.
According to a National Safety Council report, “cell phone use while driving leads to 1.6 million crashes each year. Nearly 330,000 injuries occur each year from accidents caused by texting while driving. 1 out of every four car accidents in the United States is caused by texting and driving.”
Perhaps an adult is the one most guilty of being distracted behind the wheel?
That doesn’t necessarily mean texting and driving, but includes everything from drinking, changing the music dial or even using hands free devices. There is so much to distract a driver today.
If you aren’t sure how to start the conversation, visit their website for a family contract. The Distracted Driving Family Contract allows you to have the important conversation and take a variety of things into consideration. Imagine how empowering it could be for your teens if you are the one that needs to change and they see you initiating the change?
