All Star Driver Education Driving School Stands With AAA-OH To Support Texting and Driving Ban In O

A recent study by State Farm Insurance and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia finds a correlation between rate of Traumatic Brain Injuries in teen auto accidents and strictness of Graduated Driving Licensing laws.

 
PRLog - Apr. 13, 2012 - ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- All Star Driver Education (http://www.allstardrivereducation.com) announced that it supports AAA Ohio’s position to pass a ban on Texting and Driving in Ohio. The ban passed swiftly through the House Legislature in Ohio, but most recently has stalled in committee in Ohio’s Senate.

All Star Driver Education, a driving school in Ohio, fully supports banning texting and driving and advises passing Ohio Senate Bill 154 which would “Prohibit wireless texting while driving.” The bill passed Ohio’s House of Representatives 88-10.

Texting while driving is considered distracted driving. Distracted driving has become an increasing cause of traffic accidents and deaths, especially among teens. The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and State Farm Insurance have found that “from among the more than 55,000 teen drivers and their passengers seriously injured each year in 2009 and 2010, 30 percent suffered head injuries.” The rate of teen driver fatalities varied from state to state. Some states had lower fatality rates, while other states had substantially higher fatality rates.

The study concludes that “The dramatic variation is due, at least in part, to the strength of a state’s GDL law.”

Comprehensive GDL laws and driver safety laws like texting bans and mandatory seat belt laws help keep young drivers safe, the study says. All Star Driver Education supports this legislation to keep young drivers safe.
