Viewpoint: The Art of Driving

March is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. Based on the statistics, it’s a good month to focus on the problem of distracted teen driving. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for people between 15 and 20 years of age. Every year some 3,000 teens die on the highways. Another 300,000 suffer severe injuries and lifelong disabilities. The National Safety Council sees it as a national health crisis. The ART of Driving is an educational awareness program for teen drivers and their parents.
