If you are a parent, you may have many concerns with respect to the safety of your teen. Or, you might be a young person who has never driven before, and you may be worried about the likelihood of an accident once you start to learn how to drive. Regardless, it is crucial to make sure that you are fully prepared for any potential risks and do what you can to reduce the likelihood of a collision occurring. Unfortunately, many young lives have been lost and many teens have been left with lifelong injuries due to motor vehicle collisions.

For starters, you can help your teen realize some of the risks they may face behind the wheel. For example, if weather conditions have deteriorated, or if your teen is driving at night, you should try to remind them of the importance of being vigilant. Distractions are a major risk when it comes to road safety, especially for younger drivers. Smartphone use can significantly increase the chances of a collision and many teens use their phones regularly to keep in touch with friends and share posts on social media. Unfortunately, phone use behind the wheel can take a driver’s hands, eyes and attention off of the road, which may lead to a devastating accident.

Driving can be very helpful for teens, offering independence and a convenient way to get to work and school. However, it is important to be cautious and realize how many young people have passed away in traffic collisions.
