It’s National Teen Driver Safety Week and the Northeast OPP will be out educating young drivers.

Parachute Canada’s National Teen Driver Safety Week will focus on reducing distracted, impaired and aggressive driving.

The OPP says young drivers make up 13 per cent of all licensed drivers, however they account for nearly a quarter of all road-related injuries and fatalities.

Police say over 51 per cent of young adults admit to distracting driving, very well knowing the consequences.
