Car crashes are the number one cause of teen deaths in the US
“Car crashes are the number one cause of teen deaths in the US. California is ranked second in the number of teen driver fatalities and number one in fatalities of passengers
of young drivers. The California Department of Motor Vehicles cites the following among teenage driver crash risk factors: Poor hazard detection, low risk perception and risk taking.
In California, only 6 hours of drivers training is required. The required hours should be increased to assure greater experience. Also, parents of teen children should take an active part in supervising and enforcing safe driving practices of their children. Simply buying your child an expensive car and letting them loose on the road is a recipe for disaster.”
