TEENTRAKKER Presentation

  2. 2. <ul><li>LAURA BUSH OPENS UP ABOUT FATAL TEEN CAR CRASH </li></ul><ul><li>(NewsCore) – Former First Lady Laura Bush has opened up publicly for the first time about a car accident she had when she was 17 which killed a high school friend in Texas, The New York Times reported. In her new book, “Spoken From The Heart”, Bush says the November 1963 crash which happened after she ran a stop sign in her father’s car and slammed into another vehicle has haunted her for most of her adult life. </li></ul><ul><li>The driver of the car, Mike Douglas, who was a star athlete and popular student at Bush’s school, died in the night-time accident. </li></ul><ul><li>“ The whole time,” she said of the immediate aftermath of the crash, “I was praying that the person in the other car was alive. In my mind, I was calling ‘Please, God. Please, God. Please, God,’ over and over and over again.” Bush concedes that she and a friend were chatting when she ran the stop sign but suggests a hosts of factors beyond her control also played a role – the pitch black road, an unusually dangerous intersection, the small size of the stop sign and the car the victim was driving. </li></ul><ul><li>She says her guilt was compounded by the fact that she slept through the victim's funeral – after his parents had said they did not want her to attend it. She is also sorry that she never reached out to the parents afterward, though the sound of Douglas's mother crying, heard through the thin curtain in the emergency room, has remained with her. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>TEEN DRIVER STATISTICS </li></ul><ul><li>The number 1 cause of teen deaths per year is due to car accidents. </li></ul><ul><li>Over 5000 teens ages 16-20 die due to fatal injuries caused by car accidents each year. </li></ul><ul><li>Each year, approximately 400,000 drivers ages 16- 20 will be seriously injured due to car accidents. </li></ul><ul><li>16 – 19 year olds have the highest risk of being in an accident. </li></ul><ul><li>16 – 19 year olds are four times more likely then other age drivers to be involved in a car accident. </li></ul><ul><li>Teens are 10% of the US population, but account for 14% of all fatal car accidents. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>TEEN DRIVER STATISTICS </li></ul><ul><li>60% of 16 -18 year old drivers will be in a police – </li></ul><ul><li>reported collision. </li></ul><ul><li>Teen drivers ages 16 –19 are 4 times more likely than older drivers to crash. </li></ul><ul><li>There is an 89.2% chance of having a crash within the first 3 years of driving. </li></ul><ul><li>There is a 52.5% chance of your teen having 2 crashes within the first 3 years of driving. </li></ul><ul><li>** National Highway Safety Council </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>WHY TEEN DRIVERS ARE AT GREATER RISK </li></ul><ul><li>They over estimate their driving abilities. </li></ul><ul><li>They under estimate hazardous driving situations. </li></ul><ul><li>They are less able than more mature drivers to recognize dangerous situations. </li></ul><ul><li>They are more likely to speed and tailgate. </li></ul><ul><li>Over 50% of all teen deaths from car accidents occur between 3pm and midnight, and 54% occur on weekends. </li></ul><ul><li>Immaturity and inexperience. Teens lack the judgment of more experienced mature drivers. </li></ul><ul><li>Teens have the lowest rate of seatbelt use among all drivers. </li></ul><ul><li>The presence of teen passengers increase the crash risk of unsupervised teen drivers. This risk increases with the number of additional teen passengers. </li></ul><ul><li>** National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>THE TRADITIONAL DRIVER TRAINING </li></ul><ul><li>A few hours a week of driving school lessons. </li></ul><ul><li>The occasional practice in parking lots or through the neighborhood. </li></ul><ul><li>Driver education course in high school (if still available at your school). </li></ul><ul><li>Studying the basic DMV manual. </li></ul><ul><li>IS THIS ENOUGH? </li></ul><ul><li>DOES THIS MAKE YOUR TEEN A BETTER DRIVER? </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>WHAT WE SHOULD BE DOING </li></ul><ul><li>A minimum of 50 hours of supervised practice. </li></ul><ul><li>Begin with 15-20 minute practice sessions. </li></ul><ul><li>Increase sessions to 1 hour during daylight. </li></ul><ul><li>Progress driving sessions to nighttime. </li></ul><ul><li>Begin practicing in poor weather conditions. </li></ul><ul><li>A night time restriction on driving. </li></ul><ul><li>A restriction on carrying additional teen passengers. </li></ul><ul><li>COMMUNICATION </li></ul><ul><li>Ask them what they notice, stop signs, traffic lights, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Ask where their lines of vision might be impaired. </li></ul><ul><li>Ask if there is a vehicle behind them. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This communication will provide you a better understanding of your teen driver’s awareness. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>** State Farm Insurance </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>New research shows parent-teen interactions may cut teen crash risk in half. </li></ul><ul><li>September 28, 2009 – “Two new studies conducted by the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and State Farm Insurance Companies published today in Pediatrics reveal a link between teen driver crashes and the way families communicate and approach rules about safety. Researchers found teens are half as likely to crash and far less likely to drink and drive, use a cell phone, or speed if their parents set clear rules, pay attention to where they are going, who they will be with, and when they will be home in a supportive way. In addition, the researchers found that teens who reported being the main driver of a car were twice as likely to have been in a crash than teens who said they share a car with other family members.”* </li></ul><ul><li>* Philadelphia Inquirer September 28, 2009 </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>PARENTING TIPS TO KEEP TEEN DRIVERS SAFE </li></ul><ul><li>According to recent research of teen views on driving, teens who say their parents set rules and pay more attention to their activities in a helpful, supportive way are half as likely to be in a crash. This balanced approach to parenting is called authoritative parenting. </li></ul><ul><li>Set clear rules, boundaries and expectations. Rather than stating, “You’ll do as I say,” explain your reasoning. </li></ul><ul><li>It’s about safety ,not control . Make sure they understand rules are in place for their safety, not to control them. As their skills develop and they become more responsible, introduce new privileges. </li></ul><ul><li>Be responsive . Listen to their concerns and, when appropriate, modify expectations to fit circumstances. </li></ul><ul><li>Recognize their need to become independent . Reward responsible behavior with greater privileges. </li></ul><ul><li>Let them know you can be counted on for help and support . How a parent shows support may be different from family to family, but it’s important teens know you can be relied on. </li></ul><ul><li>Pay attention. To help teens make good safety decisions, keep the lines of communication open. Know where they are going and why, and discuss how they will get there and when they will be home. Provide alternatives to allow them to avoid unsafe driving situations. </li></ul><ul><li>Lead by example. Follow the rules of the road. Always wear a seatbelt. Don’t talk on a cell phone while driving. Don’t speed. </li></ul><ul><li>** American Academy of Pediatrics </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>SET HOUSE RULES & REDUCE CRASH RISKS FOR YOUR TEENS </li></ul><ul><li>Use seat belts on every trip - driver and passengers. </li></ul><ul><li>Do not use cell phones while driving. </li></ul><ul><li>Follow all driving laws, including no speeding. </li></ul><ul><li>Do not drive while impaired or ride as a passenger with an impaired driver. </li></ul><ul><li>No peer passengers, only adults passengers. Include siblings after six months of driving. </li></ul><ul><li>No nighttime driving. Gradually increase driving curfew after practicing driving at night with your teen. </li></ul><ul><li>No high speed roads. </li></ul><ul><li>No driving in bad weather. </li></ul><ul><li>Control the keys. Teens need to ask for the keys(even for own vehicle). </li></ul><ul><li>** State Farm Insurance & Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia </li></ul>
