Teens and parents have similar perceptions on what is distracting and/or unsafe driving behavior.

Research conducted for The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility by APCO Insights in May 2010 revealed a similar “do as I say, not as I do” response from a national sample of parents and their teen drivers. Parents and teens both identified the use of handheld devices while driving as the most distracting and dangerous behavior, and they agreed again that the crashes and injury/death are their biggest worries when it comes to unsafe driving and new drivers.

That is why The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility in conjunction with the Virginia Supreme Court Judges launched the new I Know Everything program designed to effectively capture the attention of today’s teen drivers and parents to promote safe driving and keep parents talking to their teen driver about current facts on teen driver safety, as well as information for parents and teens so the message they deliver and their actions behind the wheel is better than “do as I say not as I do.”
