The answer is d) all of the above
Yes, 11 teenagers die EVERY SINGLE DAY because they choose to TEXT and DRIVE.
The United States has the unwanted lead in this problem, far exceeding similar accidents in other countries around the world. Teenagers are avid text message users and they make up 27 percent of the drivers in fatal crashes that were attributed to distracted driving. During daylight hours, about 660,000 drivers are using their cell phones or manipulating other electronic devices every moment. This activity increases the risks of becoming involved in an accident by three times over normal risk probability.
