Despite the focus on distracted driving, AAA reports speeding is a bigger cause of teenage driver deaths.
1 in 3 deadly teen crashes involve speeding, according to a survey.
For the first time in ten years, more teens are being killed on the roads than last year.
The survey was sent to driving instructors who report that visual impairments, speeding and distracted driving are the top three mistakes young drivers make.
The report also says, parents are not as good at teaching kids how to drive than ten years ago.
Deraux Branch of Branch’s Driving School says, “We need to do a better job of modeling as adults. Kids do what their parents do. So if you’re texting and driving and your kids are sitting next to you, they’re going to text and drive.”
