The Roadmap To Teen Driver Safety
June 26, 2006
Crashes and vehicular collisions have been considered to be the leading cause of death among teenage drivers who are 16 years old or 17 years of age. This is according to a recent study that has been conducted by the American Automobile Association (AAA) department Foundation For Traffic Safety.
With this in mind, the researchers who work at the Center for Injury Research and Prevention of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia are quite optimistic when dealing with such an issue. This is mainly because they do believe that with the right kind of guidance, there are effective ways so as to make sure that such situations would be reduced greatly.
This group of researchers has just recently released a completed study that took nine full months to complete. It was a scientific review that was focused on knowing the factors that were at work with regards to crashes and injuries of teenage drivers. With that at hand, they then worked on making and developing ways so as to lessen fatal events like that. If you are interested, you can have a copy of the study for it will be included in the Injury Prevention journal under the title “The Science of Safe Driving Among Adolescents.”
Dr. Flaura K. Winston, M.D., Ph.D. is the co-scientific director and founder of the Center for Injury Research and Prevention at the mentioned hospital in Philadelphia. She voices out, “If we continue with our current policies and programs, more than 100,000 U.S. youth and young adults will die in crashes over the next 10 years. Recent research points to an optimistic future if we apply these findings to programs, policy, and technology that guide learner drivers to safe independent driving.”
State Farm is also one of the contributors to the study. Laurette Stiles is the vice president for strategic resources at the mentioned organization. She further claims, “The challenge before us is to guide youth from passengers, dependent on parents and friends for rides, to independent drivers who make safe decisions, manage their passengers, and avoid hazards. The time is now to effectively guide this transition without losing thousands of our youth every year.”
