You Or Your Teen Driver Still Feeling Distracted

As distracted driving becomes a bigger and bigger issue there are more people and companies coming forward with both solutions and enforcement. Chevrolet and the State of New York are 2 of the most recent and what they bring to the table is worth talking about.

In the case of Chevrolet we have what they call their "Teen Driver Package" as an option in the new Impala. This installed option tracks the speed and acceleration of the car, the range where it has been driven and other information like top speed. Another critical feature demands that the seat belt of every occupant is buckled before the in-car entertainment system will work. Imagine a teen driving a car without a stereo with their selected tunes! As a parent I know I feel better knowing that there are companies finally taking the safety of my teen driver more seriously. Any new technology can be defeated when someone is driven to defeat it but overcoming this is unlikely for the simple reason of minimal needs to do so.

The State of New York is raising the ante on those who continue to drive while texting or playing on the web and are involved in an accident. Lawmakers are considering a roadside test that would require you to hand over your cell phone aftern an accident to an officer who would then use "textalyzing" software to check for recent texting, e-mailing or anything else that would violate New York's hands free driving laws. Failure to do so would result in license suspension similar to the penalty for refusing a breathalyzer.

As advocates for the injured we see the ramifications of driving while distracted and support reasonable measures to eliminate this behavior and the injuries it causes.
