(813) 254-7119 Tips to Help Your Teen Driver

Ready or not, your teen is ready to start driving. Giving them that much responsibility and freedom can be nerve racking. However, setting a positive example and stressing a few key safety precautions can make all the difference for your teen driver.

Limit the Number of Friends in the Car

According to the AAA Foundation, approximately 60 percent of teenage-related crashes are caused by distracted driving. But these distractions aren’t restricted just to friends inside the car. In face, having a single teen passenger in your car can double the risk of causing a car accident. Adding additional teen passengers causes the risk to escalate. Setting a limit on the number of teens in the car or requiring approval of additional passengers could drastically help your teen from being distracted.

Drive New local Routes with Your Teen

If your teen has an after-school job or autumn sport that requires a bit of a drive, practice the route with them. This lets you know what hazards are on that route. Everyone knows that most accidents don’t happen that far away from the house. By practicing routes your teen will be taking often, you can not only warn them about potential hazards in the area, but you can help them work on skills they may need to improve.

Set the GPS Before Driving

A GPS can be just as distracting as a cell phone. That is why it is important to establish the habit of inputting your destination and configuring your preferred setting prior to driving. Always advise your teen not to input new or additional information while driving and risk driving distracted.

Set the Example

The best way to teach them how to stay safe is to demonstrate good habits of your own. While teenagers might not deliberately model their behavior after you, they will unconsciously pick up habits. So no cell phone, set your gps, and don’t get distracted!

My experience with Ligori & Ligori was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
