3 Ways to Reduce the Risk of Teen Car Accidents
SAN DIEGO, Feb. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Teenage drivers are four times more likely than an adult driver to get into a car accident according to the Centers for Disease Control. The elevated risk comes in wake of a young driver’s inexperience coupled with the natural tendency to want to test or break the rules. As a car accident lawyer in San Diego, there are many cases that come across my desk involving young, inexperienced drivers. Now parents can take a proactive approach to improving their teen’s driving by considering these 3 tips for reducing car accident risk.
Sign a parent-teen contract together
Parents and teens who have common ground can often work together to promote safety behind the wheel. To avoid San Diego injury car accidents, parents and teens are encouraged to download this free parent-teen driving contract before your teen hits the road.
Install technology that reveals your teen’s driving habits
GPS-enabled tracking systems can be a parent’s best friend when it comes to their teen’s driving behavior – especially if their teen is allowed to drive without supervision. There are several available products available for purchase that allow parents to instantly locate the vehicle, keep track of speeding, set up acceptable routes for travel, and receive notifications upon a teen’s departure and arrival. A simple Google search will render many GPS units made especially for teen drivers.
Disable their cell phones while driving
Many cell phone companies offer parents the opportunity to disable their teen’s cell phone when driving. Special technology disables the phone when moving is sensed. Check with your cell phone service for available options.
