It is stupid how people say that teen drivers are in the most accidents because they are always texting or are irresponsible, when really the cause could be that teen drivers are beginners and do not have a lot of experience to get out of tough driving situations. amirite?

I think it's a combination of both texting and being a novice driver.

do you really believe that? Nearly every one of my friends will text while driving. I do it as well. Sometimes stereotypes are more true than you think.

I am a teen driver too. I know that people text while driving. I meant that not ALL accidents are caused by texting.

That's the thing about stereotypes. They generalize. What may not be true for you, could be true for the other 99% of teenagers. it's just one of those things that you cannot let bother you. As long as you don't do it, then there is nothing to be worried about.

Then you shouldn't be worried about it either. My whole point was that some teen drivers just don't have a lot of experience and that is what can cause accidents. It was not about stereotypes or how "99% of teenagers text."

I somewhat agree, but I know from personal experience that when teens do get their licenses they have this feeling of "independence" and being invincible.

I think it really is texting. I've done it, I see people do it all the time. It doesn't really shock me. And, I also know that I went so freaking slow when I learned, and stayed away from big roads, so I think it would almost go down. So, even though it's stereotypical, I think it's true.

I've seen loads of stuff on tv about texting and driving being a big problem in america (and possibly other places) and i was really shocked. I'm english and i've never seem anyone do that. I didnt think anyone would actually be stupid enough to text and drive.

Yes, it's extremely irritating. It's like, "herp da derp, let's increase the driving age to 28, then no one will be in accidents." They'll still be amateurs...

Also, I think the reason that young drivers text is because they're inexperienced. They don't know how much of an issue it is.

It's amazing how people act like adults don't text and cause accidents too, I understand that it's more teenagers but that doesn't mean it's only teenagers.

Exactly. And the adults that do it are just more experienced and aware of their surroundings, so they get in less accidents because of it. But it is not only teenagers that text, and it is stupid how that is the stereotype.

I'm actually surprised at the amount of people saying that they text and drive. Why would you do that? It's just unnecessary. Though I do hate it when people say things like this. Just recently on the 1 month anniversary of a girl at my school's death, a substitute lectured my class on how teens die from not wearing seat belts. The awkward thing was that she was wearing a seat belt and the car wasn't even speeding.

For the most part, accidents happen because someone isn't paying attention to the road, not because one of the drivers is inexperienced. One of the biggest reasons that teens don't pay attention to the road is because of texting. Just sayin'.
