Home/91% of Parents Who Drive Distracted Do So in Front of Their Teens

The finding underscores not only the need to help parents break the habit of driving distracted, but also to help them understand their role as a driving coach. Numerous studies show the positive impact parents have on their teens’ driving habits.
