October 9th, 2017

Some very important statistics to remember:

  • 1 in 4 teens who died in motor vehicle collisions between 2000-2010 tested positive for cannabis. 
  • Research indicates that texting behind the wheel is equivalent to driving with your eyes closed for five seconds. 
  • 96% of drivers would stop driving distracted, if a passenger asked them to. 
  • One in four young adults know someone that has been impacted as a result of distracted driving. 
  • Over half of teen deaths from drunk driving occur on the weekend. 
  • Speed is a factor in one third of teen driver deaths.
