Teen Driving Safety Tips

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, drivers between the ages of 16 and 19 are three times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash than drivers 20 and older.

Here are some important driving tips to help your teenagers navigate the roads safely.

Avoid Distracted Driving
Distracted driving is one of the most prevalent causes of auto accidents in the United States. Distraction comes in many forms, may it be playing with the numerous gadgets inside modern cars or texting, distracted driving is as dangerous as driving while intoxicated.

Teach your teens that when in control of a vehicle, the road is the only thing to focus on.

Don’t Drink and Drive
Peer pressure impacts all teens and can lead to them drinking and driving. A recent study at Texas A&M University found that even small amounts of alcohol could have a significant effect on both mental and motor skills. One drink is one too many.

Drive Defensively
No matter how skilled and attentive a young driver might be, other drivers may be less so. While keeping control of their own vehicle is paramount, remind them to expect the unexpected from others. Young drivers should practice defensive driving habits so they’re prepared to react to any dangerous situations that arise.
