One Utah school district is implementing a new program to try to prevent car accidents with young teens.

The Jordan School District launched the "Attitude Kills Drive for School" program. Driver's Education instructors will learn about the 21st century teen and how to communicate with them to be safe and free from distractions while driving.

Teachers say today's teens need a quicker pace and shorter activities to keep them motivated.
