New Jersey parents of teenagers are often alarmed to hear that their children send text messages or talk on their cellphones while they are driving. However, in a recent study, 27 percent of teenagers who were surveyed admitted to changing their clothes in addition to doing homework or putting on makeup while behind the wheel. Another 40 percent of teenagers admitted to texting while driving, but that number is lower than it has been in some previous studies. Those who have researched the subject say that this lower number means that awareness campaigns have been working.

Major car accidents can be tragic enough if two vehicles are involved, but if more than two are involved, the accident can become much worse. Multiple vehicles can make the situation much more dangerous for those involved, and such an accident can involve numerous people. More cars involved in an accident can result in more severe injuries for those involved. Unfortunately, one multiple car accident in New Jersey recently injured multiple people.
