Teen Project: Teen Crashes by Maria Guardado
Transcript of Teen Project: Teen Crashes by Maria Guardado
In 2010, 54 percent, or 1,532, of the 2,814 occupants of passenger vehicles age 16 to 20 who were killed in crashes were not buckled up.
The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety released a report in May 2012 that showed that the risk of 16- or 17-year old drivers being killed in a crash increases with each additional teenage passenger in the vehicle. The risk increases 44 percent with one passenger; it doubles with two passengers, and quadruples with three or more passengers. The study analyzed crash data and the number of miles driven by 16- and 17-year olds.
Fifty-five percent of motor vehicle crash deaths among teenagers in 2010 occurred on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.
Why is this problem especially for teens?
Car accients in general are problem by itself, but teens are especially affect more. Their group age (16-19) are inexperience drivers that get distracted more easy by passengers and talking or texting on the phone. Teens also lack skills because they don't have experience and knowledge of driving to understand risks (ex. texting, drinking drugs, speeding or not wearing a seat belt) they take while driving puts them danger as well as others. These distractions lower their reaction time causing them to be more likely to crash then other age groups.

what can I do personal?
Something else that should be done to help solve or curb the problem.
Having New driving requirements for new drivers (teens) in which they have to participate in a program that teaches these new drivers the risks of drinking, drugs and use of phones while driving. In addition these new driver should be check if they drive safe.
Police can also enforce the laws currently more.
Introducing short programs to student early in school similar to programs about drugs and acholch already happening in middle and high schools. Just as an addition to programs already made it will help in their decision later in life. Having students at their schools take a pledge to not driver dangerous.
I can't stop people from crash, but i can influence my family and friend to be better drivers and possibly take a one of the many programs/courses available to teach them to be safer drivers them. Hopefully cause a domino effect in their family. Or possibly taking it further starting a club at school that supports safe driving, raising awareness in my school.
