Whenever teenagers get behind the wheel, it’s natural for parents to worry, because sadly, car crashes claim the lives of more teenagers than anything else in this country. According to the CDC, teenage drivers are 3 times more likely to get in a crash than someone over the age of 20.
Many things in modern life make it hard to stay focused on the road, including cell phones, radios, friends in the car, speed, alcohol and drug use. While these distractions present dangers for drivers of ALL ages, the risk of serious injury and even death is highest for new drivers, but don’t despair!
