Noltensmeyer Insurance Services, LLC Encourages Parents to Talk to Teens about Distracted Driving In Light of a Recent Fatal Accident
Date:4/10/2013

Houston, Texas (PRWEB) April 10, 2013

For many parents, the day your child passes their road test is both a moment of pride and a moment of fear. There are many dangers on the road. Inexperienced drivers such as teens are more susceptible to the risks motorists face every day – especially when it comes to distracted driving. Recently, in Dumas, 5 teens were killed after an SUV struck a gas tanker, as reported by CNN. The SUV, driven by a 16-year old, ran a stop sign.

Unfortunately, motor vehicle wrecks are the number 1 killer of youths in the United States. The good news is that, according to the National Highway Traffic Administration, the overall number of traffic fatalities has been declining at a record rate. Nonetheless, the insurance agents at Noltensmeyer Insurance Services, LLC do not want to see any Texas residents become impacted by fatal crashes. With distracted driving being one of the leading causes of fatal traffic accidents, it is important to educate young drivers about ways to effectively avoid distractions.

Important distractions to avoid while driving:

  •     Text messaging
  • Talking on a cell phone – there are many hands-free and Bluetooth devices available for use, but even answering a phone call can be too distracting for many new drivers
  • Eating and drinking
  • Surfing the web on your Smartphone
  • Grooming – i.e. putting on makeup, checking the mirror, or removing or putting on articles of clothing
  • Adjusting the stereo- whether it is the CD player or radio
  • Using the GPS
  • Talking to passengers – or even singing along to the radio
  • Road rage

When driving, remind your teens that it is best to avoid all distractions. It is always safer to pull over to handle anything that involves taking your eyes off of the road for even a split second. Avoiding distractions can save lives and avoid accidents all together.

Safe driving has its perks, too. For motorists who take defensive driving courses, or go for long periods of time accident-free, there are many discounts available on auto insurance policies. Texas residents with questions about driving safety courses or policy-related questions are encouraged to give the local agents at Noltensmeyer Insurance Services, LLC a call today. They are always willing to help the community stay safe.
