One of the most common, tempting, and deadly distractions for teens behind the wheel are cell phones. Distraction was a key factor in 58% of crashes involving drivers ages 16-19, according to an analysis of video footage of 1,691 moderate-to-severe crashes 6 seconds before they occurred. Crash risk is 4X higher when a driver uses a cell phone, whether or not it's hands free.
