What Are Teen Driver Safety Contracts?
Teen Driver Safety Contracts can help limit the many distractions available to young adults on today’s roadways. The contract between parents and teens mitigates many of the avoidable accidents that we generally see in insurance claims.
All parents who have entered this phase of child rearing are encouraged to explore the three documents commonly used for teen driver safety. Below are a few relative statistics to teen driving per the CDC:
- 10% of teen drivers involved in fatal crashes are distracted at the time of the crash
- 20% of high school students reported in 2015 they had ridden with a driver who had been drinking alcohol within the previous month.
- (8% reported having driven after drinking alcohol within the same one-month period)
- Compared with other age groups, teens have among the lowest rates of seat belt use. In 2015, only 61% of high school students reported they always wear seat belts when riding with someone else.
