Driving Safety –
for Teenage Drivers
Jack Gong, OL 73
Great Responsibility
• Driving is an ability that offers a lot of
convenience but requires the responsibility of
the driver to maintain a safe environment on the
road.
Risk of Young Drivers
• Teenagers' lack of driving experience, together
with risk-taking behavior, puts them at
heightened risk for crashes.
• In 2013, 2,163 teens in the United States ages
16–19 were killed and 243,243 were treated in
emergency departments for injuries suffered in
motor vehicle crashes. That means that six teens
ages 16–19 died every day from motor vehicle
injuries.
Reduce the Risk
• Fortunately, teen motor vehicle crashes are
preventable, and proven strategies can improve
the safety of young drivers on the road.
• There are some problems out there that are the
major causes of road accidents. For example,
texting and driving, impaired driving, etc. Rising
attention to these matters are the priority of
young drivers.
Texting and Driving
• In the fall of 2011, CAA issued a call to action to
youth from coast to coast, asking them to show
their friends and family why it’s dangerous to
text while driving. CAA research shows texting
while driving is the number one road safety
concern of Canadians, surpassing even impaired
driving, and those most likely to text and drive.
Alcohol and Driving
• Driving after drinking can be a great risk even
with experienced adult drivers.
• 17% of drivers aged 16 to 20 involved in fatal
motor vehicle crashes had a BAC of .08% or
higher.
• There is a .00% BAC requirement for young
drivers in BC.
Seatbelts
• Of the teens (aged 13-20) who died in passenger
vehicle crashes in 2013 approximately 56% were
not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
• Research shows that seat belts reduce serious
crash-related injuries and deaths by about half.
• Buckle up your seatbelt – one small move can
save a life.
Conclusion
• Don’t text while driving.
• Never drink before driving.
• Buckle up every time.
• Remember that every time you start the car, you
are taking up the responsibility for not only
yourself, but your passengers, and all the people
whom you share the road with.
