How we can prevent texting and driving

Teens are the ones with the phones, but parents play the largest role in keeping teens from using their phones behind the wheel. If parents continue to prohibit their children from using their phones in the car, then it could help teens develop good habits for not using their phones while driving. Parents should also set good examples when their children are young to make sure that their children grow up knowing that texting and driving can lead to horrible consequences.
