Teen drivers in most states face numerous restrictions on their ability to drive. Graduated drivers’ licenses limit the number of passengers and the hours when teens are allowed to take the wheel.
There’s good reason for that. As the graphic below shows, drivers between the ages of 16 and 19 face the highest risk of automobile crashes among any age group. An average of six teen drivers die each day in motor vehicles crashes. As many as 650 young drivers are injured each day.
The graphic recommends signing your young driver up for an approved driver education course. Add a parent-teen driver contract to make your young driver responsible for their actions behind the wheel.
The Keating Agency can help you and your young driver with these. We also can help with other ways to stay safe on the road. As a local, independent insurance agency, we work with more than two dozen companies to provide the right Auto Insurance coverage for you. These include carriers with usage-based coverage that can provide your teen with incentives to drive safely.
