Reducing Accidents in Teen Drivers
Most people know that teens are at a higher risk of a bad car accident. Just a couple of days ago, two teenagers died on a freeway only a few miles from where I live in the San Diego metro area. There were no drugs or alcohol involved in this accident, but the teen driver was speeding, it occurred in the evening, and there were 5 passengers in the car – 3 out of 4 situations that are considered high risk factors that increase the likelihood of an accident among this vulnerable group. The 2 victims were still in high school. Maybe teens don’t respond to our standard “grown-up” scare tactics, but we hope this infographic will get passed on and hopefully create more awareness among parents and teenagers.
To reduce your teen’s chances of being involved in a car accident, or worse a driving fatality, minimize these four situations:
- Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
- Driving at high speeds.
- Driving at night.
