Teen Driving Tips for Avoiding Automobile Accidents

Never Text and Drive

personal-injury-attorney-Bronx-NYRemind your teen driver it’s illegal for all New York drivers to use handheld mobile devices for playing games or sending and receiving emails, texts, and phone calls. There are a few exceptions, such as calling 911. To avoid temptation, have them turn their phones off while driving.  

Never Speed to Arrive on Time

Instead of speeding, the best practice is to plan how long it would take to arrive on time, and build in extra driving time for traffic and unexpected delays. It’s better to be late for an event than never to arrive at all.

Resist Peer Pressure

Teach your teens to stay in control behind the wheel, and not give into passengers who dare them to drive fast or recklessly. Stunts and careless driving cause accidents, personal injury, and wrongful death. Limiting the number of passengers is a good practice.
