Surprise! Teen Drivers Ignore Rules

Actually, I’m not surprised.  A recent AP article notes a study which says teen drivers don’t abide by the law against using cell phones. 

The understatement of the year may be a quote from the article, “Cell phone bans for teen drivers are difficult to enforce.”  This was referring to enforcement by police agencies.

I think the easiest enforcement is for parents to take cell phones away.  Or simply talk with teens about the dangers of talking on cell phones.  If any parents want examples of how using a cell phone while driving is dangers just give me a call.  I can give you lots of examples of my clients who were seriously injured in motor vehicle accidents where the at fault party was distracted by a cell phone.

FYI.  There is no statewide ban on cell phone use while driving in Wisconsin.
