National Teen Driver Safety Week
In order to encourage safe driving among teens, the MVC recently announced a partnership with NJM Insurance Company to promote the award winning Share the Keys program, which is available at no cost to New Jersey high schools. It also limits in-car distractions, restricts the hours teens can drive at night, raises the age at which young drivers can use cellphones behind the wheel to 19 from 18, and requires teens to earn their way from one stage of driving to the next.
Note: Statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The campaign features a downloadable handbook that includes practical road safety advice for coaches and trainees, as well as a series of "offensive" and "defensive" driving plays to master with your teen driver. "In Ohio, 124 people lost their lives in crashes involving teen drivers in 2016". The CHP has released a mobile application (app) for Start Smart, created to assist young people through the process of obtaining their California driver license.
Vehicle crashes remain the number one killer of teens, but over the past decade tremendous advancements in safety and education have resulted in a drop in deaths involving teen drivers.
A group of high school students spent the morning learning about the dangers of distracted driving and that their driving skills might not be as sharp as they thought.
The Goleta PD is aware of the importance of role models in a youth's development. By a huge margin, teen drivers rate their personal devices as the number one source of distraction behind the wheel, ahead of eating or drinking, friends, family, music and navigation. Parents and guardians must set firm driving rules to impact their teen's driving behavior. According to data analyzed by NHTSA, teen drivers were 2.5 times more likely to engage in one or more potentially risky behaviors when driving with one teenage peer, when compared to driving alone. However, with all of these activities, teens tend to compromise something very important: sleep. Make sure they're following the rules all the time and you do that by opening up a dialogue and having a good conversation with them.
TxDOT says state and national laws are not doing enough to protect drivers who are new to the roads. More space is needed to stop on slick roads.
If you're thinking of helping your teen driver stay safe by passing down your vehicle, or purchasing one for them, but are anxious that bad credit may stand in the way of a new ride, let Auto Credit Express help.
