Teen drivers may increase your risk of having a car accident

From their risk-taking behaviors to simple inexperience, teen drivers can be dangerous on Florida roadways. Of course, we are not suggesting that all teen drivers are dangerous; we are simply cautioning our friends and neighbors to exercise caution when young drivers are nearby. Doing so could mean the difference in experiencing a car accident and avoiding a crash altogether.

According to the CDC (centers for Disease Control and Prevention), car accidents are the top cause of death among teens in America. While this statistic alone is disheartening and sad, the tragedy increases when you consider that teens may put other people at risk for injury or death as well.

There are many reasons that teenagers experience or even cause car accidents. For example, the CDC says that these youths may not be able to recognize potentially dangerous situations. Other risk factors cited by the CDC include the following.

  • Teens may be prone to making critical decision-making errors.
  • Many teen drivers may engage in risky behaviors like speeding.
  • Teen motorists have a high risk of experiencing a car accident when driving under the influence.

When the factors above are combined with a young driver's inexperience, it can be a recipe for disaster. Educating youths about the life-threatening risks associated with driving can help. We also believe that it is important to hold these drivers to account when they cause a car accident. Even if the crash is only a minor one, teens will benefit from learning about the consequences of engaging in illegal activities. This can make Florida roadways safer for everyone while protecting the lives of our state's youth.
