Most teens in Philadelphia go through high school hearing the message that drinking and driving is dangerous. And while this is certainly true, and leads to thousands of teen deaths every year, a recent study found that fatal accidents related to texting and driving among teenagers has surpassed the number killed in drunk driving-related accidents.
The study was conducted by Cohen Children's Medical Center. According to the study, 2,700 teens die a year from driving under the influence. However, 3,000 teens die every year from texting while driving.
