Editorial: "It Can Wait" campaign aims to reduce teen fatalities

Texting while driving is a serious problem in North Carolina and across the nation and teens at East Forsythe High School are leading the cause to reduce teen driving fatalities due to texting and driving. North Carolina Governor Bev Purdue recently declared a "No Texting While Driving Pledge Day" in conjunction with AT&Ts "It Can Wait" campaign. At least 1,600 students and staff from the high school signed pledges stating they would not text while driving. The pledge drive consisted of an online form or a hard copy document that could be signed by students and faculty.

School is starting, be on the lookout for teen drivers

This blog has previously written about how teenagers are more likely to be involved in car accidents. They just don't have the same experience as someone 20 years older. And with high schools all around North Carolina beginning to open for the year, it's important to remember that there will be many more teen drivers on the roads.

Strict teen driving laws can improve road safety, reduce crashes

Statistics and research has shown that driver safety education programs and experience on the road are important factors in preventing accidents and preventing dangerous behaviors such as distracted driving.

There is no doubt that negligent or distracted drivers on our Fayetteville roads have a higher risk of being injured or injuring others in a motor vehicle accident. One major distraction is the use of electronics and other hand-held devices such as cell phones.

Study: North Carolina teen drivers too distracted by electronics, part two

During a six-month period, researchers from the University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center gathered more than 24,000 video clips of teen drivers from 50 different families in our state. These recordings of drivers were only taken when video systems installed in the families' vehicles detected certain events that could have been caused by distracted driving such as making an abrupt turn or braking quickly. The video clips of young drivers were only recorded when they did not have an adult supervising their driving.

Earlier this year on our Fayetteville personal injury law blog, we mentioned the results of a national study that had been released indicating that teen deaths resulting from motor vehicle accidents were on the rise in the U.S. during 2011.

Bad driving habits of teen drivers may predict auto accidents

Many of us have probably seen a motorist driving poorly on our Fayetteville roads at one time or another and have thought, "Wow, this person is going to cause an accident unless they learn how to drive." Well, a new study based on this concept has revealed some interesting insights about teen drivers, their driving habits, and how certain bad habits correlate with the increased risk of being involved in a car accident.

Fatal car accidents involving teens on the rise in North Carolina

Drivers and passengers are injured or killed every week on our North Carolina roads, but a new study suggests that teens may be more at risk of being involved in a fatal car accident compared to others.

North Carolina teen killed in car crash, four others injured

Getting one's driver's license is one of the most exciting moments in a teen's life. But with this new privilege also comes greater responsibilities. After last week's fatal car accident that involved several high school students in Union County, North Carolina, many teens and new drivers may have been reminded about just how important it is to take their driving privileges seriously.

New study links new drivers to more car accidents

Citing loud music, peer pressure and the presence of teen passengers, a new study published by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety has revealed that drivers who have only had their licenses for a month are far more likely to be involved in a car accident.
