Insurance company aims to cut number of teen car accidentsPosted On Tue, November 30, 2010
Allstate auto insurance is teaming up with the National Safety Council to help reduce the number of teens involved in deadly car accidents.
A coalition will be established in states across the nation, consisting of law enforcement officials and members of the health and medical communities, along with those who have been affected by teen driver errors.
NSC president and CEO Janet Froetscher says the funding will help build a stronger campaign.
"Funding from the Allstate Foundation allows NSC to develop a coordinated strategy for building effective state coalitions," says Froetscher. "The coalitions will mobilize state leaders to find unique solutions to the teen driving issue and save young lives for generations to come."
This collaborative effort is one of many the auto insurance provider has made recently to help make roads safer. Recently, the insurer sponsored a campaign with musicians to help combat distracted driving among young motorists.
Teens have often been cited as major texting while driving offenders. However, research has shown that adults engage in the activity as well. Grooming, eating and changing the radio have also been noted as factors that take motorists' eyes off the road.
