Survey Says: Teenage Girls May Be More Dangerous Drivers


As a whole, it’s safe to say teenage girls are more the social butterfly type than their male counterparts. I know that both of my daughters are social butterflies for sure! So, it may not surprise you that recent study by AAA found that teenage girls are twice as likely as boys to use cell phones while driving. This obviously is despite all the warnings about how dangerous it is, and how distracted driving puts everyone who does so, increases their  risk of getting into an accident. Do you trust your teenage driver?

In a study released from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, researchers analyzed the habits of 50 teen drivers and found that along with being twice as likely as male teens to use an electronic device while driving, teen girls were 50 percent more likely than boys to be reaching for an object and nearly 25 percent more likely to be eating and drinking.

Do you find this to be true in your home? Do you have any surefire way to  make sure that your kids don’t text and drive?
