Lawrence Buckfire Asks Parents To Get Behind National Teen Driver Safety Week
Date:10/22/2013

Southfield, Michigan (PRWEB) October 23, 2013

The week of October 20-26 has been designated as the National Teen Driver Safety Week (NTDSW). This annual event is an advocacy campaign that concentrates on safe driving practices for young adults. This year’s theme is “It takes Tow: Shared Expectations for Teens and Parents for Driving.” The idea behind this theme is that teen drivers should work together with a parent (or other trusted adult) to help them become a safe, skilled driver.

The mission of NTDSW is to keep families safe on American’s roadways. Young drivers, ages 15 to 20 years old, are especially vulnerable to death and injury on our roadways due to tragic traffic crashes and auto accidents. In fact, motor vehicle collisions are the leading cause of death for teenagers in the U.S. In addition, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, “Mile for mile, teenage drivers are involved in three times as many fatal crashes than all other drivers.”

Research also proves that the leading causes of death and injuries to teens in a car accident include:

  • Inexperience and immaturity combined with speed
  • Drinking and driving
  • Not wearing seat belts
  • Distracted Driving (Cell phone use, loud music, other teen passengers, eating, etc.)
  • Drowsy driving

At the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. our attorneys have considerable experience in personal injury cases involving car accidents. We see the outcomes of these tragic collisions every day. While for a teen getting a license may be an exciting time in their life, it is important that parents or other trusted adults work with the teen to ensure safe driving practices and understanding the seriousness of operating a vehicle on the road.

The NTDSW advises teens this week to ensure parents teach them critical driving skills, such as speed management, recognizing and avoiding distractions, scanning for hazards, and development of house rules for the first year of independent driving.

During this week, teens across the U.S. are teaming up to tackle car crashes by acting as a role model and supporting initiatives that raise awareness of this problem to help create change. You can also do this by leading by example, such as always buckling up and having no distractions in the car while driving.

The facts are true and the reality is the occurrence of car accidents involving teen drivers is high, yet highly preventable in most scenarios. Our Michigan car accident attorneys highly recommend everyone, not just parents, but all residents get behind National Teen Driver Safety Week.
