Should Teens Have So Many Driving Laws?

  1. 1. Should Teens Have So Many Driving Laws? By: Travis
  2. 2. My Point <ul><li>There should be more laws surrounding teen driving because teens are unskilled drivers who need to practice at driving before they have the same laws as a person who is not considered a youth driver. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Leading Cause of Death For Teens <ul><li>The leading cause of death for teens is car crashes. Almost 40% of all crashes are teen related. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Some of The Laws Now <ul><li>Curfew- Cannot drive between the hours of 12am and 5am. </li></ul><ul><li>No more than one friend and one family member in the car at a time. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Future Laws in NH <ul><li>Must obtain a permit for six months before you can get your license. </li></ul><ul><li>Get caught going ten miles an hour over the speed limit and lose your license for a year. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Are Older Drivers Dangerous? <ul><li>Many older drivers are dangerous </li></ul><ul><li>Older people seem to suffer from memory loss and can be forgetful </li></ul><ul><li>Many cannot see well </li></ul><ul><li>Many older people drive slow, which can be just as much a traffic hazard as driving fast </li></ul>
  7. 7. Drinking And Driving In Teens <ul><li>60% of all teen driving deaths in accidents are alcohol related </li></ul><ul><li>522 children under age 14 were arrested while drunk driving </li></ul>
  8. 8. This car accident was from a group of friends who had been at a party and were drinking. They were going 120mph on the freeway when they ran into the back of a semi truck while rounding a corner. The driver and driver side passenger were killed while the passenger and rear passenger side friends walked away with little injuries.
  9. 9. Teens Wearing Seat Belts <ul><li>Only 65% of teens say they use there seat belts while driving </li></ul><ul><li>Officers should be able to pull teen drivers over for not wearing seat belts </li></ul><ul><li>Only twenty five states enact this law </li></ul>
  10. 10. Teens Who Speed <ul><li>Teens (male and female) were more likely to speed or tailgate with a male passenger in the front seat. </li></ul><ul><li>Male teens were less likely to speed or tailgate with a female passenger in the seat. </li></ul><ul><li>Females were more likely to speed or tailgate with a female passenger. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Conclusion <ul><li>Teens should have more driving laws since they account for so much of the percentage of accidents. Maybe if there were more laws there would be less accidents. </li></ul>
