Duluth, GA Car Accident Lawyer | Teen Drivers and Speeding

aqua-83008_640Last week, I wrote an article about the dangers of speeding and how a Duluth, GA car accident lawyer can help you with your claim should you find yourself involved in a car accident.  This week, I want to talk about speeding specifically in regards to teen drivers.  Of course, everyone has gone over the speed limit regardless of age, but according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), speeding was the cause of more than half of car accidents involving teen drivers.  Moreover, when it comes to accidents that resulted in serious injuries, speeding was a contributing factor in 21% of car accidents involving teen drivers.  Teen drivers are also more prone to car accidents (and fatal car accidents) than older age groups in general.  

While these statistics are startling, it isn’t unsurprising as teen drivers are much more inexperienced on the road than older age groups.  It is important to share with your teen the dangers of speeding as it is one of the leading causes of car accidents.  Moreover, when speeding causes an accident, it is especially unfortunate because this means the accident could have been easily avoided.
