With school now in session and more teenagers driving to and from school, the questions resurface about what steps should be taken to prevent teenagers from being injured or killed in car accidents?
Some policymakers suggest that if the following items become law, can accidents involving teenagers will reduce:
- Limiting the number of teen passengers who may accompany a teen driver without adult supervision to no more than one (unless they are family members).
- Imposing a nighttime driving restriction from at least 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. for unsupervised drivers younger than 18 year old.
- Ban cell phone use and/or text messaging use by all drivers under the age of 18 years old.
What do you think? Will any of these work? What do you suggest be done to reduce car accidents involving teenagers?
