Ruskin, FL-- Teen drivers have the highest car crash rate of any age group in Florida.
There have been several initiatives to curb distracted driving including the recent ban on texting and driving.
Loud music, cell phones and eating while behind the wheel are only a few of several distractions that can easily lead to an accident.
Lennard High school students in Ruskin got a look at the dangers first hand.
"We run that campaign every winter about buckling up." Said Christian Torres.
"I think I will be more aware of just safety in general and I know personally I try to make sure my friends are buckled up,"said Lennard Senior, Ieazhia Mills.
According to Florida Department of Motor Vehicles more than 22,000 teen drivers were involved in car crashes last year, 41 of which ended deadly.
So far in 2013 year there have already been 35 deaths involving teens behind the wheel. A statistic Florida highway patrol is working to change.
Sgt. Steve Gaskins stressed the importance of safety blitzes like "delete teen crashes" are a reminder of the consequences of distracted driving.
"It calls attention to the matter," said Sgt. Gaskins. "We are all working together to do what we can to make sure we are taken seriously."
Florida Highway Patrol hopes that blitzes like "delete teen crashes"will promote driver safety when hitting the road.
