Impact Teen Drivers has been working to share with teens the dangers of reckless and distracted driving in California since 2007. Having your teen participate in this initiative can ensure that they are safe drivers and your premium for Southern California auto insurance is kept at a minimum.
Impact Teen Drivers’ message is simple: focus on the road ahead and get to where you are going safely. While this is common sense for most, teens are often distracted by many things once they get behind the wheel. Whether it’s the radio, their friends, or their cell phone, a teen’s attention can easily go from one thing to the next, forgetting about the task at hand.
Teen driver crashes are the leading cause of death for our nation’s youth. The majority of these accidents are caused by distractions. In a survey done by Impact Teen Drivers, 80 percent of teen drivers own a cell phone and nine out of 10 have witnessed teen drivers talking on a cell phone.
Teaching teens proper driving techniques will help all drivers in California. As parents of a teen driver, you should speak to your Southern California auto insurance agent on how you can help your teen be a careful driver and keep your premiums to a minimum.
