Georgia Summers Mean More Teen Drivers on the Roadways


June 03, 2015

Many of us would agree that summer in Georgia is attractive to both residents and tourists alike. Specifically, it is a time where kids are out of school, and they get to enjoy their time at the pool, playing sports, or hanging out with friends. Teenagers waiting for the parental "green light" to drive are also out and about much more during the summertime than they are during the school year. Along with teenage driving comes the risk that accidents may result from driver inexperience. We all learned to drive once, and doing so can certainly be a frightening experience until we become more proficient. Teenagers should have an opportunity to learn to drive, but they must also follow all safety measures to ensure they themselves are not contributing to any accidents.

Georgia Teen Drivers are at Risk for Being Involved in Automobile Accidents

Whether it is the sense of freedom, or the eagerness to drive like an adult, among other reasons, teenage driving is one of the most exciting times for a young individual in the summer. While most teens are aware that they are a risky group of drivers and should, as a result, take extra precautions to avoid collisions, unfortunately some are involved in accidents. Automobile accidents involving teenagers can be some of the most tragic, as these young individuals are just reaching the brink of adulthood. As such, parents and teens alike must pay extra attention to the roadways this summer, following all traffic laws and safety tips recommended by the Georgia Department of Transportation.

Despite the fact that teenage drivers amount to one of the riskiest groups amongst all drivers, there are still other drivers on the roadways that pose an even greater risk to others. For example, adult drivers who choose to get behind the wheel while under the influence of alcohol or drugs are likely to pose a greater danger to others than any sober teenage driver. It is also important to keep in mind that some teenage accidents involve alcohol and/or drug use as well, making the situation involving their lack of experience even worse. Whatever the cause may be of an automobile accident involving a teenager, the end result could mean preventable life-altering injuries or death.
