As teens head to school, they should avoid distracted driving

Young people from kindergarten-age to college-age have been heading back to school in recent weeks. While most are probably lamenting the end of summer, it can be an exciting time as well. But, with the end of summer vacation, that means that many more younger drivers, especially teenage drivers, are going to be on the roads again. High schoolers and college students alike should remember to avoid using their cellphones or engaging in any other distracting conduct while driving.

A recent report noted that it seems like cellphones are the top distraction for young drivers. Well, cellphones may even be the main distraction for all drivers these days, as the number of Americans who own "smartphones" has skyrocketed in recent years. The recent report stressed the main thing that drivers should be sure of when it comes to operating a motor vehicle: paying attention.

Car accidents have always been one of the main causes of deaths and injuries in America, but after years of statistics showing a decrease in these figures as vehicle safety features and driving habits improved, the last few years have shown these statistics to be on the upswing again. Many experts have pinpointed distracted driving - and cellphone use in particular - as the main cause.

Parents who send their children off to school each day expect them to come home at the end of each day as well. As long as teenage drivers can avoid dangerous distracted driving behavior, this is a daily outcome we can all look forward to.
