Learn about safe Teen Driving at the Drive it Home show!
Are you a parent of a teen driver? Or a Soon-to-be teen driver? Then I highly recommend you check out the Drive It Home website to learn important facts and tips that will help keep you teens safe!
Here are some facts about Teen Driving you may not know:
- One of the most dangerous years in a person’s life is the first 12 months after getting a driver’s license. Annually, there are about two million teens under the age of 18 in their first year of driving on U.S. roads, the National Safety Council (NSC) reports.
- Parents don’t understand the most deadly risks to their teen driver. Research shows that inexperience is the No. 1 cause of teen crashes, but 74 percent of parents inaccurately believe that risk-taking is the leading cause.
- In 2010, the latest year for which data are available, motor vehicle crashes were the leading cause of death among 13-19 year-old males and females in the United States
- 16-year-olds have higher crash rates than drivers of any other age.
- Teenage drivers and passengers are among those least likely to wear their seat belts.
