Teens Learn Distracted Driving from Parents

Sep 26, 2012 Posted by in Distracted Driving

If you’re the parent of a teenage driver, chances are you’re worried about the decisions your teen is making behind the wheel.  But according to a survey commissioned by Liberty Mutual and Students Against Destructive Decisions, you might be the cause of your teen’s poor driving habits.

Last week, CNN summarized the results of the survey of more than 1,700 teens. The majority of the teens admitted to making poor decisions while behind the wheel.

Moreover, most of the teens claimed they learned their driving habits from their parents.  The two most common poor habits were talking on a cellphone while driving and speeding.
