FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) - With school out for the summer, many teenagers will be hitting the road to learn to drive for the first time.

Allen County Drive Alive, a non-profit campaign aimed at helping to prevent distracted driving, is reminding all drivers to be aware of the rules of the road.

Indiana has the highest rate of teen fatalities among states in the region, according to Amy Hathaway of Allen County Drive Alive. The organization uses a variety of programs to help teach young drivers and even their parents about a range of driving topics.

The group uses a driving simulator and weekly online tips that focus on everything from wearing seat belts to not drinking and driving.
