Transcript of Driver's Ed Teen Driving Project

Cell Phones and Driving By:Caroline Dunning Texting and driving is an issue,especially among teens. Why? Because we all think its cool and we want what everyone else has. Take it from me, a teenager. Its not cool. Don't text and drive. According to the AAA’s survey of teen drivers, 46 percent of the teens text message while driving and 51 percent talk on cell phones while driving. The AAA reports that car and traffic accidents are the leading cause of death for people ages 15 to 20 years old. According to the University of Utah, using a cell phone while driving, whether it’s hand-held or hands-free, delays a driver’s reactions as much as having a blood alcohol concentration at the legal limit of .08 percent. NHTSA and the AdCoucil paired up to create the Stop the texts; stop the wrecks campain. The capmpaign is trying to show teens the consequences of their actions. Here are two of their commercials: At&T created a campain called It can Wait. This campaign was created to tell consumers to be safe using their products. Here is their commercial: I have a few suggestions for all teenagers on how to stop texting and driving and here they are: 1. Send out a text or message or e-mail to all of the people you know that have cell phones or that do text and drive. Don't send it while you are driving, of course, but do it at a convenient time. 2. Also, while you are driving, turn your phone off in the first place. If its not on and if it isn't visible, you won't be thinking about it. 3. Finally, before you leave to go for a drive, inform all of the people that could possibly interrupt your driving that you are going to be driving and not to bother you. Personally, there are some actions that I could take to help prevent texting and driving. Here they are: 1. If one of my friends or someone I know is driving with their phones, I could hold it for them and they could tell me what they want to say. 2. I could make posters and post it around school and also talk to the school about the issue.
