TEENAGERS CAUSE CAR ACCIDENTS – MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD IS READY TO DRIVE
The Minnesota Department of Public Safety wants parents to take responsibility for their teenage drivers. They point out that traffic crashes are the second leading cause of teen deaths in Minnesota. Around 30 teens (ages 16–19) are killed on Minnesota roads yearly. Teenagers are at greatest risk on the road due to their inexperience and risk-taking behind the wheel. Of course, as with all drivers, speeding and distracted driving are factors. Teens also have the lowest seat belt use rate of all age groups.
It takes a commitment by parents and many hours to prepare teen drivers to get behind the wheel. But that doesn’t end when a teen gets their license. A common mistake by parents is thinking their teen is ready for the road as soon as they pass the road test. For example, teens shouldn’t be driving alone the first time they hit the road when it snows. Parents should practice with their teens in different types of scenarios before their teen drives solo.
