Risky driving behaviors to address with your teen

A teenager in a car

Remind your teen that driving under the influence of any impairing substance, including illicit or prescription drugs, could have deadly consequences.

Officer Nelson with the RCPD says they typically see teen drivers easily distracted while on the road as well as speeding. "It is important that we equip them with the right knowledge and provide them with the rules that will ensure they stay safe on the road", said New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety Acting Director Gary Poedubicky.

Passengers. Passengers in a teen's vehicle can lead to disastrous consequences.

"When I first assembled the Teen Driver Safety Task Force, we knew we faced a hard task", Secretary of State Jesse White said.

"One out of every five young drivers in the United States is involved in a collision within the first six months of driving, often because they are distracted". Roughly 60 percent of those fatal accidents involved a teen being distracted while behind the wheel; about a quarter involved teens who had been drinking.

Unlike in generations past, when getting a license essentially meant a 16-year-old could hit the road unrestricted, the graduated license system recognizes the driving process involves a learning curve that cannot be taught through books or in a classroom.

Content in the "Coaching Your Teen Driver" handbook is drawn in part from lessons Michelin developed in association with the American Driver and Traffic Safety Education Association (ADTSEA). The latest results from State Farm show that the number of IN teens involved IN fatal vehicle crashes has gone down 30% between 2005 and 2015. At the heart of the campaign is an interactive website that highlights the dangers and penalties for talking or texting while driving and promotes a forum for citizens to share their own experiences and thoughts about this irresponsible behavior.

The CHP is aware of the importance of role models in a youth's development.

Michelin's "Coaching Your Teen Driver" handbook (available at www.michelinman.com/SharingSafety) is created to provide practical advice with the goal of making young drivers more game ready. The likelihood of teen drivers engaging in risky behavior triples when traveling with multiple passengers.

Avoid Driving Tired. Teens are busier than ever - studying, extracurricular activities, part-time jobs, and spending time with friends are among the long list of things they do to fill their time. Make sure they're following the rules all the time and you do that by opening up a dialogue and having a good conversation with them.

If you're thinking of helping your teen driver stay safe by passing down your vehicle, or purchasing one for them, but are anxious that bad credit may stand in the way of a new ride, let Auto Credit Express help.
