The Problem with Teen Drivers
Motor vehicular accidents are said to be the number one killer of teens on the nationwide scale, even more than drugs, homicides, and suicides combined. But this doesn’t have to be the case, and it takes more than just the basics to change that.
Every year, roads become more congested. Cars are faster and there are more distractions existing today than it was before. That’s is why there is a need to learn beyond what the basic driver’s manual is teaching. The issue does not actually stem from what the teens are taught to do behind the wheel, but rather what they are not being taught. Teens are taught how to maneuver or operate a vehicle, sadly, not the skills and awareness needed to control a particular vehicle. Majority of this “driving training” are left with the parents and siblings who may have the experience, but no practical method to pass down that experience to the teens.
