What are some risky behaviors that teen drivers may exhibit?

When a young person first receives his or her driver’s license, they are likely to be very excited and look forward to their new-found freedom. However, this can lead to concerns from their parents, who should be aware of the different risks associated with driving at a young age. Whether you are the parent of a teen driver or are a young driver yourself, it is important to understand and avoid some of the risky behaviors that some people exhibit behind the wheel.

According to information published by the State of California, there are a variety of risky behaviors that teens may be especially likely to exhibit behind the wheel, which can cause a motor vehicle collision. For example, many younger drivers have driven while drunk and may become more likely to cause a crash than older drivers who have the same blood alcohol level. Research also shows that teens wear seat belts less frequently and may not have the ability to handle their vehicle as well due to less driving experience. Moreover, some young drivers are more likely to take risks and less likely to detect hazards on the road, which can be disastrous.

It is essential to point out that while these issues can be problematic for young drivers, they are also a cause of concern with regard to drivers of all ages. As a result, it is pivotal for drivers to be aware of their actions and any behaviors that could make a motor vehicle collision more likely.
