Teen Driving Car Accident in Glendale, Arizona
Teen Drivers Cause More Car Crashes When Driving With Other Teens
As Glendale car accident lawyers, we are deeply concerned by new studies from the American Automobile Association (AAA) that show that teens cause more Arizona car crashes and collisions in other states when they are driving with other teenagers in the car.
What Can You Do?
We recommend having your teenager consider a driving course. There are multiple driving programs out in Arizona. Many of these driving schools allow teenagers to not just drive on the road but also use equipment that assimilates their experiences in a vehicle with other teenagers. The equipment can also show your teenager what happens when they are driving on the phone and texting. This brings to light to your teenager the importance of always being attentive when on the roadway.
How to Prevent a Teenage Driver Auto Accident
More than 18,100 teenage driver-caused Arizona car crashes are reported by the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) every year. Nearly 5,900 of these collisions are reported to cause moderate to serious injuries or deaths. Parents can help protect their teenage drivers and teenage passengers from being involved in one of these serious collisions by teaching them a few simple driving rules. That being said, there are still many safe drivers who are teenagers. We have represented many teens who have been hurt by adult drivers. Here are some tips:
- Always wear your seatbelt and make sure that everyone else in your car is wearing one too.
- Never drive faster than speed limit.
- Turn off your cell phone before you start the car and don't put it back on until the car is off.
