Parents concerned about child drivingPosted On Thu, September 29, 2011
A recent study from Allstate revealed that a majority of parents are concerned with their child driving, as there are many distractions on today's roads.
More than 70 percent of parents are concerned about their children texting while driving, while 50 percent are worried that their kids will drink and drive. Specifically, 75 percent of mothers are worried about texting, while 69 percent of fathers feel the same way. Another 65 percent of moms think their children are in danger from other drivers, while only 54 percent of fathers agree.
"Technology and multi-tasking has made driving today completely different than years ago," says Phil Telgenhoff, field vice president with Allstate in California. "Knowing that teens watch what adults do while driving is why it is so important that everyone put down the phones, limit distractions overall and set a good example in the car."
Parents who want to make sure their kids are as safe as possible may want to examine different auto insurance rates to find which one best suits their family.
