TicketHelp Safe Driver Scholarship
In the United States, car accidents kill more teenagers every year than any other cause of death. On average, about 6 teenagers aged 16 to 19 die every day in car accidents. For the most part, these car accidents can be attributed to inexperience: not responding to road hazards quickly enough, taking curves too quickly and being distracted by something outside or inside the vehicle.
Of course, perhaps the most distracting part of driving nowadays is the cell phone. In the 5 seconds it takes to read that text message, drivers can travel over 300 yards at 55 miles per hour, and they are essentially blind while doing so. About 10 percent of all teenage drivers involved in fatal accidents were using their phone — texting, calling or using social media. At any given time, more than 650,000 people are using cell phones while they drive, and young drivers are the most common culprit.
TicketHelp is offering two $1,000 scholarships per year to young people.
