Teen Driving Issues Project

Statistics from research regarding teen crash rates
Many teens get into accidents for being on their cell phones. This action alone causes about 11 Teen deaths everyday. As earlier stated some teenagers dont understand that they can be one of those 11, and dont realize all of the dangers on the road. And how big cell phones impact those 11.
How is one oragnization or group trying to solve this problem? Name the group and what they are doing
AT&T has a campaign called "It Can Wait". It Can Wait has a pledge to drive more safely. They also have launched a DriveMode app. The app keeps all phone calls and text quiet while you are driving. It automatically detects if you are going faster than 15mph, and turns off when you have stopped.
How is another organization or group working to solve the problem? Name the group and what they are doing
Another organization is Safe Texting Campaign. The Safe Texting Campaign also has an app that is completely free for Iphone users. It sends you a notification that says "Please don't text and drive". You can also Join the Pledge. It can help you remember the dangers of being on the phone and driving.
Something else that should be done to help solve or curb the problem. My own idea's for solving the problem. This may not be something that is currently being done
Kids should all have to take Drivers Ed before getting there permit. They should also have to take a class with a driving instructor for at least 5 hours for the whole time they have their permit. This can help inform what some teens don't understand. It could also potentially save lives.
What I can personally do to make more people aware of this problem
There are some things that people can do to make the people around them more aware of this problem. I can personally start something like a facebook page and make sure my family and friends know the dangers of being on their phones while driving. It would also help if I incourage my friends and family not to use their phones. I can do that when In the car with them, I take their phone and do what ever they need to do on their phone so that they wont be tempted to touch it.
The use of cell phones while driving is very dangerous for Teens. This is such a problem because teens feel like nothing will happen to them. They don't seem to understand that while they are on the phone they are not paying attention to the road. Looking away For even one second can change everything. A lot can happen when you look away.
