Encouraging Good Habits during Teen Driver Safety Week

Encouraging Good Habits during Teen Driver Safety Week

Vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teenagers, ahead of all other types of injury, disease, or violence.

Drivers using in-vehicle technologies such as voice-based and touch-screen features were visually and mentally distracted for more than 40 seconds when programming navigation, sending a text message and other tasks, the study said. To shed light on this epidemic and reduce the number of lives lost, the Goleta Police Department wants to draw public attention to National Teen Driver Safety Week, October 15th - 21st.

More than half of teen drivers wish they learned more about driving safely on ice, snow, or wet roads. He says those two create a recipe for a traffic accident.

So "Five For Drive" is a campaign to lower crash rates for teens by giving parents five things to speak to their teens about before they get behind the wheel. All the Time. Distractions while driving are more than just risky-they can be deadly. Remind your teen that driving under the influence of any substance- including illicit prescription or even over the counter drugs-could have deadly consequences and is strictly enforced.

A group of high school students spent the morning learning about the dangers of distracted driving and that their driving skills might not be as sharp as they thought.

THE number of driving deaths among IL teens has dropped by half since the state instituted stricter guidelines for earning a driver's license almost a decade ago. When teens begin driver's education, many states and localities now require parents to attend informational meetings. "Keeping a cool head on the road starts with a strategy and a plan - that's where Michelin's resources for coaching your teen driver can help", said Emmitt Smith.

Parents can play an important role in helping ensure their teen drivers take smart steps to stay safe on the road. An estimated 99,000 teen passenger vehicle drivers were injured in motor vehicle traffic crashes. The theme for the week is: "The Haunting Reality of Teen Driving". Despite not being legally allowed to buy alcohol, nearly one out of five teen drivers involved in fatal crashes had been drinking, according to 2015 data from the NHTSA. In 2015, 531 passengers died in a vehicle, truck, or SUV driven by a teen driver, and 58 percent of those passengers were NOT buckled up at the time of the fatal crash.

One of the top priorities to talk to your teen about should be buckling up every time, in every seat. Parents and others, setting the example and educating new drivers is regarded as a critical function to help keep everyone safe while driving.
