AAA Oklahoma Encourages Talking With Teens About Safety On The Road

ICBC stresses distracted driving is more than being on your phone; it is anything that takes the driver's focus away from the road including eating, changing music, and putting on make-up. The IIA will continue to support safe teen driving initiatives not only in the month of October, but all year long.

"Teen crash rates are higher than any other age group", said AAA Public Affairs Manager, Cindy Antrican.

State Farm officials say the rate of teens involved in deadly crashes in IL has dropped 45 percent; only 132 teens were involved in 2015, compared to 239 in 2005. The adjustment helps ensure that newly licensed drivers develop the skills needed to deal with the risks associated with driving at night.

Officials also say data from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety points to Graduated Driver Licensing programs as the main reason for the reduction.

"When we help teens drive safely, everyone on the road wins", said Amy Stracke, Managing Director of Traffic Safety Advocacy for AAA - The Auto Club Group.

Motor vehicle crashes remain the leading cause of death for teens in the United States.

The company says parents play a big role in teaching their teens to avoid texting and driving, speeding and by wearing a seatbelt. The online AAA StartSmart program also offers great resources for parents on how to become effective in-vehicle coaches as well as advice on how to manage their teen's overall driving privileges.
