"Put the Brakes on Distracted Driving"

"Put the Brakes on Distracted Driving"

Members of the Coalition's Youth Advisory Council recently sponsored "Put the Brakes on Distracted Driving."  This two-day community event was dedicated to preventing distracted driving among teenagers.  

The Coalition for Youth of Lower Merion and Narberth, in conjunction with StreetSafe Driving Academy, a local driving school run by police officers, sponsored an interactive forum to raise awareness of the effects of distracted driving.  Held in the Courtyard of Suburban Square, the event featured student drivers awareness videos and distracted driving simulators. Findings from our recent student survey showed that 84% of our students that drove at the time they took the survey admitted to driving distracted at least once or twice in the past year.  Community members came out to support the youth of our community and learned more about this troubling issue.
