Getting a driver’s license is considered a rite of passage in American culture. But this exciting time has instead become a death sentence for thousands of teens each year. Motor vehicle crashes continue to be the leading cause of death among teens ages 16-19t. This age group also happens to be the age group with the highest risk of crashes.
The financial implications are staggering, too. Motor vehicle crashes involving 13- to 19-year-olds result in about $40.7 billion per year in costs from medical expenses and work loss. That’s not counting the costs of auto maintenance, insurance premiums, possible traffic citations, and other vehicular incidents — expenses that can pile up over time.
It’s important for teens to understand the risks of teen driving crashes. It’s a big freedom for them, but also a very big responsibility.
To help teen drivers and parents, our training can and will reduce your teen’s risk of a crash. We do our training for selfish reasons.
