Humor was used to address a serious topic at North Niles High School in Illinois. A presentation that was part comedy skit and part serious lecture addressed distracted driving. It is estimated that distracted drivers caused over 3,000 deaths and 400,000 injuries in 2010. One teen said the contrasting styles of the presentation made the serious parts stand out more. Common distractions among teens include talking on a cellphone and texting while driving. While the audience was primarily students, the problem affects older drivers as well.
