Texting and Teen Driving
One in three teens who text report that they have done so behind the wheel. Texting behind the wheel is a cause of distracted driving. Distracted driving is a danger not only to the driver but passengers, other drivers and pedestrians. A new teen driver lacks the experience behind the wheel of a more seasoned driver. The teen driver does not yet fully understand just how quickly things can change as a vehicle is driven on the roadway.
Herrick & Hart encourages parents to talk to their teens about the dangers of distracted driving. We remind all teen drivers that driving is a privilege and not a right and that each time they get behind the wheel they should use caution and good judgment.
