HARRISBURG, Pa. -- The Pennsylvania Teen Safe Driving Coalition is calling on parents to set a better example behind the wheel for their young drivers in the wake of new survey results.

According to the National Safety Council, 95 percent of parents use cell phones while driving, even when their teenagers are in the car.

Also, 94 percent of adults said they are their teen's primary driving instructor.

Teenagers said parents are their numbers one resource when it comes to learning how to drive.

Friday at Harrisburg Area Community College, members of the CBS 21 family were promoting and taking pledge for the Drive Safe Central PA campaign.

The pledge drive was held to drivers to help put an end to distracted driving.

Throughout the year CBS 21 will continue have pledge drives to get people to commit to driving with their hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road.
