Teens Who Share a Vehicle are Safer

Teens look forward to the day they can drive, and parents often fear the same event! Interestingly, new research shows that teens who shared a vehicle with others in the family report only half as many accidents compared to those who had primary access to a car. Those who did not have to share a car also reportedthey were 1.25 times as likely to use a cell phone while driving and to drive more than 10 mph above the speed limit!

PositiveTip: Make sure your teens do not have unrestricted access to a car. You will have more peace of mind and they will be safer.
