National Youth Traffic Safety Month

Whether you’re 16 or 60, it’s always important to follow the rules of the road and practice being a good driver.

That means not texting and driving, minimizing overall phone usage and always be aware of your surroundings.

It’s especially important for young or new drivers.

May is National Youth Traffic Safety Month.

Michigan State Police Trooper Stacy Rasanen from the Negaunee Post says distracted driving is the number-one cause of death among American teenagers, and with school about to let out for the summer, more teen drivers will be hitting the road than usual.

Tomorrow night, we’ll have a look at the last test before teens get their license, what one area driving instructor sees in new drivers and what he teaches them.
