The High Risk Of Teenage Driving

Todays Date: August 17, 2017

Getting your license as a teenager was one of the greatest achievements that many of us can remember. It still is a memorable thing, but not quite in such a great way as it was in the past. Now teenage driving is associated with being one of the leading causes of teen deaths.

Nowadays we are all too familiar with the fact that car accidents are the leading cause of death for teens these days. A lot of this can be blamed on the experience that a teen doesn’t have when it comes to being behind the wheel of an automobile. Along with this there are also other high risk behaviours that are associated with teenage driving.

Taking a driver education program is a great way for a teenager to begin driving. It can give the teenager a lot of insights into what are safe driving behaviours to use on a regular basis. They get both the exposure they need through a classroom setting as well as experience inside the car.

Teenagers don’t think the things that they do will harm anyone. This is scary as it is not uncommon to see a teen driver either on the phone or texting people while they are behind the wheel of a car. They are playing with fire when they do this type of thing. Not just with their lives, but with the other people that are out and about when they are driving in this manner as well.

There are new laws that have been set into place that makes such high risk behaviour illegal. This is a great step in bringing this teenage driving risk to a halt.

Alcohol and drug abuse still remains another high risk behaviour that is occurring. The penalties for drinking and driving do not seem to make a lot of difference to teens anymore. For some reason they seem to think that they are indestructible. We see this is not so with the number of people that are killed as a result of teenage driving while under the influence. However, the laws that are in force are being implemented a lot more than ever before for anyone that is caught doing such things.

Young men are having behaviours that are quite risky as well. They love the road racing idea but do not think of the people that may get hurt while they do such things. They just see it as speed and more speed. This is okay when you are in an appropriate place like there are in some states, but it is not acceptable on our everyday roads.

There are many organizations that have been arranged to aid efforts with teenage driving and safety issues that surround them. The government assisting these organizations as well as personal donations are another thing that should be commended. These people are doing everything that they can to keep our young people safe while they are on the roads. Everyone needs to help with the efforts that are ongoing in regards to teenage driving and all the risks that can be associated with it.
