9 Did You Know?... Car crashes are the number one cause of death for teens.

10  Teens behind the wheel and passengers account for one in every five deaths to 15 to 19- year-olds in the U.S.  Car crashes kill nearly five times more teens than cancer or poisoning.

11 50% are caused by distracted drivers.

12 Also did you know… 11% of all 20 year old drivers involved in a fatal crash were reported as distracted.

20 People don’t consider the risks of distracted driving; however, they should. Careless drivers are more likely to become a victim of fatal car crashes.

21 THIS IS WHAT COULD HAPPEN…

22 No matter where you are, you always need to stay alert.

23 Things to keep in mind:  Speed  Road Conditions  Tail Gating  Freeway Driving  Weather

24 If you think about it, the problems you face can only be solved by one person… that one person is YOU. If you are responsible and alert every time you get in your car, you could save lives.

25 Teens don’t think about the responsibility needed to drive a vehicle.

26 If you have considered all of those facts, have you considered the responsibility of knowing your vehicle?...

27 Examples  Brakes  Tires  Steering and Suspension  Wipers  Emergency Brake  Headlights  Seat Belt

28 That next time you get in your car make sure its safe to drive.
