jenrgw Who is Most Likely to Tell a Texting Driver to Stop?

A new study from the U.S. Department of Transportation found that young people know that texting and driving is dangerous. Yet, they are the least likely group to speak out against it when a driver is texting and driving and they are the passengers.

Specifically, the study asked whether you would speak up if a driver of a car in which you were traveling were texting and driving.

• 56% of 18-20 year olds said they would say something.
• 52% of 21-24 year olds said they would say something.
• 69% of 25-34 year olds said they would say something.
• 73% -84% of people 35 and older said they would say something.

The results of this study are significant. It is important for teenagers and young adults to feel comfortable speaking up for their own safety so that serious distracted driving accidents may be prevented.

Will you commit to speaking up? If so then we encourage you to make that your pledge to end distracted driving and we thank you for helping to prevent future tragedies.
