TEEN DRIVER SAFETY

To begin with, diving is a privilege for anyone, but especially for teens. And, with it comes a sense of freedom. But, as a parent, the safety of your teen is very important. Thus, it is important to prepare your child with basic teen driver safety. In fact, these driver safety tips are perfect for all levels of driving experience.

SAFETY TIPS FOR TEENS

First, it is difficult to protect your teen once they drive off in the car. So, we put these eight safety tips together to help you educate your teen on basic driver safety.

  • Buckle Up – For one thing, wearing your seatbelt is the law! Furthermore, wearing your seatbelt increases your chances of surviving an auto accident by 50%.
  • Obey The Speed Limit – Unfortunately, this is a big factor for teenagers. Consequently, not following the speed limit increases your chances of having an accident.
  • Learn The Controls – Granted, this seems obvious. But, everyone should know how their car operates. For instance, knowing how to adjust your seatbelt and mirrors are vital for your safety.
  • Your Cars Blind Spots – Incidentally, blind spot accidents are common with teen drivers. So, it is important to remember to check your mirrors and use your directional signal when changing lanes. As a matter of fact, you should do this even with a newer car equipped with warning indicators.
  • Friendly Driving – Next, be courteous and friendly to other drivers. Because driving angry can lead to road rage or worse an accident.
  • Use Your Signals – Always be predictable and indicate your intentions while driving. Additionally, you should watch for other drivers signaling a turn or lane change.
  • Allow Room For Stopping – As, a good rule of thumb you should allow one car length for ten miles per hour of speed. Yet, this is not always possible due to traffic. In addition, you should never tailgate.
  • Watch The Road – Above all, keep your eyes on the road. Specifically, put your cell phone down, don’t put on makeup, or eat while driving. Because distracted driving is dangerous.

LEADING CAUSE OF TEEN ACCIDENTS

In all honesty, next to distracted driving, speeding is one of the leading causes of teen accidents. In fact, the NHTSA states 32% of fatal teenage auto accidents were due to speeding. So, get involved and be a good role model for your teen driver. Because kids learn from their parent’s actions.

LAWS FOR TEEN DRIVERS

Además, de las leyes de tráfico normales, los menores tienen otras leyes que cumplir para proteger su derecho a conducir. Estas leyes también tienen sanciones para los conductores adolescentes que las infrinjan.

  • No hay condenas por infracciones de tráfico - Los menores que reciben una infracción de tránsito mientras tienen su permiso de aprendizaje extenderán el tiempo del permiso de aprendizaje por un año desde la condena o hasta la edad de 18 años.
  • Asistencia a la escuela - No asistir a la escuela podría suspender su privilegio de conducir o impedirles obtener su licencia hasta que puedan proporcionar pruebas, han asistido a la escuela por un mínimo de 30 días seguidos.
  • Uso del alcohol - Florida tiene una política de tolerancia cero. Los conductores menores de 21 años que sean sorprendidos con una tasa de 02% o más recibirán una suspensión automática de 6 meses de su licencia. Si les pillan dos veces, lo pierden durante un año.
  • 6+ puntos en 12 meses - Su adolescente tendrá su licencia restringida a la conducción "sólo para negocios" durante un período de 12 meses o hasta la edad de 18 años.
  • Condena por posesión de tabaco - A los menores condenados por posesión de tabaco se les retirará el carné durante un mínimo de 30 días.

ADVICE FOR PARENTS OF TEEN DRIVERS

As for, parents with teen driving, we know your teen driver’s safety is a top priority. Thus, you may want to know what you can do to keep them safe on the road? For this reason, we put together some tips to help you.

  • Open Communication – First, we recommend talking with your teen driver about safe driving and unsafe driving. Because speaking with them will help them understand the dangers associated with driving. But, this should not be a one-sided conversation. So, encourage your teen to ask questions and bring up concerns they have with driving.
  • Create Rules – Second, set rules for your teen using the car. Like, no using a cell phone in the car and limiting the number of passengers they can have in the car. As this can reduce some of the common risky behaviors.
  • Use an App – Luckily, with smartphones, we now have apps that can track your teens driving habits. Thus, your teen may drive safer if they know you are tracking how they drive.
  • Zero Tolerance – Though, this should go without saying, DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE! Besides, underage drinking is illegal. So, is driving under the influence of alcohol. With this in mind, make it clear to your teen it is unacceptable, and you have zero tolerance.
  • Lead by Example – As I stated before kids learn from their parent’s actions. Thus, it is important for you to set the example. So, don’t drive aggressively and obey the speed limit. And, always wear your seatbelt. Because they are always watching.
  • Limit Night Driving – Finally, night driving poses all-new dangers for teen drivers. So, practice driving at night with them. As this will help build their skills and help them to be more aware while driving.
