Too often teens don’t do their homework, don’t turn it in on time, and don’t realize it’s importance. They don’t get up for school on time and do things without thinking about the consequences. If they can’t be responsible when it comes to simple tasks like these why should they be trusted being the wheel with peoples lives at risk?
The laws need to be better enforced and teens need to realize the importance of being behind the wheel. People are dying everyday due to young, inexperienced drivers and their irresponsibility.
Teens need to realize that the text they want to reply to or a pointless phone call can wait- other people lives and their own are much more important than replying to a simple phone call or text. Loud music can and teen passengers can be as much of a distraction to the driver as a cell phone, if a teen knows their friend is driving they need to let that person focus on the road and wait until they’re at a stop to talk to the driver, and leave music to a minimum. Simple precautions like these can save thousands of young lives.
The age group with the greatest number of distracted drivers was the under-20 age group. 16 percent of all drivers younger than 20 involved in fatal crashes were reported to have been distracted while driving.
