“Drive Alive -

Richmond Teen Driving Study"            

What are your texting

and driving habits?

MARKS & HARRISON, Attorneys at Law 

In recent years, many surveys have been conducted of teenage drivers in order to obtain a better understanding of their distracted driving behaviors and to develop strategies for addressing those behaviors.

However, most surveys have been done at a national level. This survey focused on teen drivers living in a specific community – the metropolitan area of Richmond, Virginia.

In this study, we conducted an online survey in March 2015 of high school students from within the Richmond community. A total of 238 teens participated in the study. However, 15 teens were excluded from our analysis of the survey results because they reported that they had not yet started driving.

When I was younger, my favorite candy was “Now & Laters” (pronounced with a Southern drawl, Nowl-laters) especially the pineapple…grape…watermelon…sour apple…chocolate… my own flavor combinations, pineapple and chocolate, watermelon and sour apple.. You get the idea! Those mouth-watering, chewy candies were sooo good.

Now that I’ve finished school, worked a while and had children of my own…my favorite candy is once again “Now & Laters”…but for an entirely different reason! As a Business/Career Consultant, Speaker and Founder of Youth Earn & Learn Jobs-for-Kids©, I love to ask audiences, “What are you doing ‘NOW’ so you can have the career, the house, the car or lifestyle you want ‘Later’?”

For some, they can answer that question right away; but for others, they have not quite figured it out. What about you? Which group do you fit in, the first or second? Whichever your answer, Youth Earn & Learn Jobs-for-Kids© is here to assist you!  Our program is for youth ages 12 and up and mirrors the real world! From filling out job applications to interviewing; attending New Hire Orientation and opening bank accounts; to attending professional Training and Development Sessions, we make sure all of our participants gain hands-on experience. Additionally, if you are selected for Youth Earn & Learn Jobs-for-Kids© you will have the opportunity to build your marketable skills by taking advantage of Internships, Community Service, and Work-based Training opportunities!
