Why is this a problem especially for teen drivers?
Using a cell phone while driving is one of the worst decisions any one can make. So many deaths have been caused by being distracted from a cell phone. This is a problem for teenagers because it has caused so many deaths, and injurys!

Statistics:
65% of people that admit to using a cell phone do not use hands free devices! http://www.nationwide.com/newsroom/dwd-surveys.jsp A statistic shows that using a cell phone while driving increases your chance of getting into a serious crash by four times! That is such a risky chance to make just because you want to communicate with a friend. If it is an emergency where you must get a hold of someone, pull over. This could save yours and someone else’s life! http://www.nationwide.com/newsroom/dwd-facts-figures.jsp

How is one organization or group trying to solve this problem? Name group and what they are doing? Campaign AAA is trying to prevent driving while using a cell phone. They use the motto “You drive. You dial. You die.” Their goal by using this ad is to make you think twice before you pick up your phone to call or text. http://www.starnewsonline.com/article/20080910/ARTICLES/809100263

How is another organization working to solve this problem? Name the group and what they are doing? “Stop texting and driving now” is another campaign to prevent using a cell phone while driving. This organization is trying to provide safe choices for drivers and to help society by lowering incidents from using a cell phone distraction. They are doing this by ads, and trying to get people to join their “TEAM” which educates drivers by events and information. http://stadnow.org/about_stadnow.html
