Most accidents occur as a result of negligent or distracted driving, which teen drivers are the number one perpetrator of. Unfortunately, the majority of teenagers are often so caught up in the excitement of driving a car that they forget there are lives on the line every time they take a seat behind the wheel.
Whether they are playing music, speeding, driving under the influence of drinking or drugs, failing to obey traffic laws, eating, talking on the phone, or texting, they don’t seem to be aware of the fact that they are putting themselves and all others on the road at risk. Safety should be everyone’s number one priority, and most teens don’t believe driving is a risk until it is far too late.
The following are consequences for hazardous teenage driving, including but not limited to:
- Increased car insurance rates
- Arrest record
- License suspension
- Difficulty finding a job
- DUI/other severe charges
- Problems finding a job or apartment
There is a reason insurance companies will charge more for a teen driver than an adult--it is because there is a very real expectancy that an untrained, distracted driver will cause more accidents and receive more tickets than one who has been driving for a longer period of time.
