Teen driver behind the wheel

Did you know that traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for American teens?

The hazards of walking while distracted

Have you ever texted a friend while walking down a sidewalk and thought ‘what’s the worst that could happen?’ For this unsuspecting guy, it was almost running into a hungry-looking brown bear. Luckily, everyone turned out okay. But what if that bear had been a car going 30 miles per hour?

Distracted Walking and Teens

I’m one of those people who is always on the phone.  Whether I’m texting or tweeting or instagramming, it comes with the territory of working in PR and social media. I know that texting while driving is extremely dangerous and I’ve really focused on not checking my phone while I’m driving. But living in the D.C. metro area means I rarely drive. I walk to the metro, then I metro to work.

It’s been an interesting week at Safe Kids Buckle Up! It’s National Teen Driving Awareness Week and we don’t usually get involved in teen driving issues. This year is different though, because of the Safe Kids Countdown2Drive campaign.
