Description: Key findings from the parent survey show that in many instances the majority of parents are not following the safe driving advice they give to their teens, possibly setting dangerous examples for young, inexperienced drivers: * 65 percent of parents talk on cell phones at least sometimes while driving; however 94 percent restrict their teens from doing the same * 68 percent of parents are in a hurry at least sometimes when they drive * 65 percent of parents drive when they are tired at least sometimes The parent survey is a follow-up to the 2007 National Young Driver Survey, conducted by State Farm and The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) , which examined driving through the eyes of teens and found that they drive under dangerous conditions - while fatigued, talking on cell phones, and with multiple passengers.
