Cell phone use while driving is against the law for teen drivers with a restricted license under Michigan’s Graduated Driver Licensing program. Don’t risk losing your license—when you drive, just drive.
Using a phone isn’t the only way to get distracted while driving. Eating or drinking while driving can increase crash risk as much as 80%. No matter how good that burger is, it isn’t worth dying for. Remember: what distracts you can impact you.
Anything that distracts you while driving increases your risk of a crash, including touching up your makeup, fixing your hair, or hunting for that perfect song on your playlist. What distracts you can impact you—so when you drive, just drive.
Did you know that a teen driver’s risk of dying in a crash rises with each additional teen passenger? Passengers are such a distraction, giving 3 or more buddies a ride quadruples your risk. Until you’re a more experienced driver, go it alone to make it home.
