Summary

Even though everyone knows safety belts save lives, many teens still don't wear them, which results in many unnecessary deaths.

Objective

To increase parents' awareness that their driving habits influence their teens' driving

High school students overwhelmingly say their parents are or will be the biggest influence on how they drive, but the practices many teens say they are emulating represent some of the riskiest driving behaviors, according to the 2004 SADD/Liberty Mutual Teen Driving Study.  

Adult driving habits, as observed by their teens, suggest that parents are modeling risky behaviors.
