What do I need to write about in my essay?
We want to encourage students to examine their driving habits and identify ways in which they commonly become distracted behind the wheel.
These could include obvious examples such as texting, tweeting, or changing music, or a less obvious example like turning to talk to friends or simply playing the music so loudly that they cannot hear other vehicles.
Next, we want students to consider and document concrete steps to ending those distracted driving behaviors.
