Distracted Driving and Teens
In the last blog in our distracted driving series, we addressed the distractions that can occur when driving with small children in the back seat. When those children become teens with driver’s licenses, distractions while driving can include cell phones, music, friends and a host of other dangers that come with multitasking while at the wheel.
