If this survey is any indication, parents are setting a bad example for their kids while behind the wheel and their teens are taking note.
According to a survey released today from Liberty Mutual Insurance and Students Against Destructive Decisions, teens are not the only culprits when it comes to making risky driving decisions. Parents engage in the same dangerous driving behaviors – including driving without a seat belt, texting, and driving after consuming alcohol – that they warn their children against. What’s worse is nearly half (41 percent) of teens say their parents continue these unsafe habits behind the wheel even after their teens ask them to stop.
