Distracted Teen Drivers Caught on Video Crashing

The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety released a disturbing compilation of dashcam videos showing teen driver vehicle crashes caused by driver distraction.

AAA analyzed 1700 teenage car accidents, all of them captured on video tape. Based on the videos, AAA concluded that distraction is a factor in 58 percent of moderate to severe teenage accidents, that’s four times the U.S. government estimate of 14 percent.

AAA is now asking that states pass tougher cell phone and passenger restrictions on teen drivers because aside from cell phone use, having more than one passenger in the car was found to be another major distraction and cause of the accidents.
