Kendall Jenner Criticized By Driving Groups

Kendall Jenner has proven that she is not the best driver and although she might think her fender benders and tickets are amusing, nobody else does.
When a video of Kendall dancing, singing and looking totally distracted while driving her car surfaced, most people didn’t find it funny.
A lot of people slammed Kendall on Twitter and other social networks and recently several groups against distracted driving have also called her out.
Distracted driving is a problem for many teens and young adults. While many of them believe that they can handle texting, talking on the phone, dancing, and being silly while driving, statistics show that distracted driving is one of the leading causes of accidents among young people.

Parents, family members and friends of victims of distracted driving accidents have banned together to create groups that help spread the word about the dangers of distracted driving. Some of the members of these groups had a few things to say about Kendall and her bad driving.
“Death by distraction is real, and no star or her family should set an example that will likely kill people!” People Against Distracted Driving president Mike Kellenyi said. “Kendall’s driving behavior is every parent’s nightmare.”
“Bruce Jenner, being a world famous personality, should never let this be broadcast,” he added. “I know if Bruce were in my shoes, this type of driving would never happen in his family.”
Jason Epstein, attorney and creator of TADD (Teens Against Distracted Driving), says Jenner needs to make amends and had some advice for the young driver.
“If I were advising Jenner, I would think that the morally responsible thing to do would be to do some sort of outreach to say it’s a mistake, and it’s not how people should be driving, and driving is dangerous, and I wasn’t demonstrating safe behavior, and I promise to do better in the future,” Epstein said.
Do you think Kendall should apologize for her bad driving and carelessness?
