Teen Drivers And Cell Phones

Bookmark and Share
Do you think teen drivers should be allowed to talk on cell phones while driving? The answer is a controversial one, because teens feel they are discriminated against when they see adults talking on their cell phone. Teen drivers are not experienced enough drivers to drive and talk on a cell phone. Most drivers no matter what their age cannot talk and drive at the same time.

With the increase of accidents by teen drivers, one has to ask themselves if it is wise to limit not only cell phone use, but any distracting activity. Changing channels on the radio or talking to a passenger can cause lack of attention to the road. Parents who have children or teens that drive need to explain the consequences of inattentive driving. This is no longer a minor occurrence, teen drivers are being killed on the roads every minute.

If you are a parent of a teen driver, you should not have to worry about your teen being in a car driving. Talking to teen drivers is the only way to stress the importance of driving responsibilities. Stop at stop sign, look both ways and keep the cell phone off. They can always answer the call back after they have stopped, but if they are talking and driving without paying attention to their surroundings, it may be the last call they take.

    I agree with you about teens and cell phones and driving, but I would add that I don't find adults to be any better. I can't imagine many situations that are so important you have to be on the phone while driving. By the way Your blog is awesome, keep at it!

    I agree about adults as well, I have a speaker phone and do not hold it in my hand when I am driving, however, most of the time, I wait until O get where I am going before returning the call.
