Tips to Help Your Teen Driver Tampa,  Florida

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!

What Our Happy Clients say

Based on 21 reviews

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders 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 & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Ligori & Sanders 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 & Sanders.

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 got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
