Distractions remain #1 reason for crashes involving teen drivers

In recognition of National Teen Driver Safety Week in Canada (October 15 to 21), ICBC is showing ways teens, their families, and their friends and do make smarter decisions while driving.

The Halton Regional Police Service is again reminding residents of the dangers of distracted driving to mark the fifth annual National Teen Driver Safety Week. About a quarter of the teen drivers involved in fatal crashes had been drinking and thanks to a study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, we also know that nearly 60% of teen crashes are caused by distraction.

State Farm officials say the rate of teens involved in deadly crashes in IL has dropped 45 percent; only 132 teens were involved in 2015, compared to 239 in 2005. "No text message or social media post is more valuable than their lives or the lives of others around them".

"Teen drivers, particularly novice ones, are overrepresented in US fatality and injury crash statistics".

Speeding is a common way that young drivers get into wrecks. The app includes a step-by-step guide covering everything from the Department of Motor Vehicles Driver Handbook and the final steps for obtaining a provisional license, to ultimately achieving an unrestricted California driver license.

Nationally, more than 3,500 teens were killed in vehicle crashes previous year. "The extraordinarily high teen crash rates are unacceptable and it is our core mission to save lives", says Charlie Klauer, a research scientist and the leader of the Teen Risk and Injury Prevention Group at Virginia Tech Transportation Institute. "It will take a holistic approach that combines education, experiential learning, and enforcement to change the driving culture to one that is distraction-free".

Those teenage passengers are being encouraged to help the driver keep their focus on the road.
