Saving Teen Lives
March 21, 2005
The National Highway and Traffic Safety estimates that of the 26 million 15 - 20 year olds, 7500 of them will be involved in "fatal" car accidents. Of the reasons cited are inexperience, risk taking behavior and immaturity. All of these lead to a greater exposure for car accidents.
The fact is, automobile accidents are a serious problem for teenagers. Safety experts are trying to change that by educating teens about the choices they make when they get behind the wheel or ride in a vehicle with other teens.
Educating teens when they are behind the wheel is important. I am suggesting we also need to inform and make other drivers aware of who is driving the vehicle, increasing road awareness and traffic safety through information. Let other drivers have the option to drive defensively with car safety magnets.
We have to utilize all methods available and consider driving safety for everyone on the road.
Please submit your experiences and thoughts on this matter. You can also stay tuned for further driving safety related information related to Teens and Mature drivers
