Teen Passengers Need Reminder on Rules of the Road

Teenagers are more likely to be injured in a car accident when they have more than one other teenager with them. That’s the news from the National Transportation Safety Board and Atlanta Personal Injury Lawyer David Van Sant.

Teen drivers need to be reminded that driving is a privilege, and parents are responsible for laying the ground rules that help to keep their teen drivers and passengers safe.

If you’re the parent of a teen, and your teen doesn’t drive but is frequently a passenger with other teens, remind her of the “passenger safety rules:”

  • Don’t ride in a crowded car.
  • Make sure you wear a seatbelt and that there is a seatbelt for every passenger in the car.
  • Don’t let the driver text and drive or talk on the phone.
  • Don’t get in the car with a driver who has been drinking or using drugs.
  • If the driver is driving too fast or not observing street signs or rules, ask to be left off at the nearest safe location.
  • Encourage others to be quiet when in the car to allow the driver to concentrate.
  • Call your mom or dad if you feel that your ride is unsafe.

At the Van Sant Law, firm associates work with accident victims and are often faced with teenagers who have sustained injuries in an accident or other victims who have been injured by teen drivers. Let’s keep all our kids safe by sharing these simple rules and encouraging safe driving and riding!
