Educating Teens on Driver Safety

By Car Accident Help on October 20, 2011

As state budgets continually tighten, Oklahoma has seen cuts across all sectors. Schools have especially felt the squeeze, and unfortunately key programs such as driver’s education have been shelved. Safe driving has always started at home, but in the current environment it’s extremely important for parents to educate and train teens on the subject. As part of Teen Driver Safety Week, observed from October 16 to October 22, the AAA here in Oklahoma is reminding parents about a tool they can utilize to instill safe driving techniques for their kids.

The program is called “Take the Wheel,” and combines materials to be used by families during home study as well as in behind the wheel training sessions. According to the AAA, the course meets Oklahoma Department of Public Safety (ODPS) certification standards and it counts as legitimate driver’s education credit by the state’s Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) law. It also makes teenagers eligible for discounts honored by the majority of car insurance providers for those completing a driver’s education program.

The AAA reports that in the United States car accidents remain the number one cause of death for teens. Over 730,000 teenage drivers, from 15 to 18 years old, were in crashes documented by the police in 2009. Out of these accidents, 280,000 of those young adults suffered injuries and 2,805 tragically lost their lives. If you or a family member has been injured in an Oklahoma car accident that you think was the fault of another driver, contact the Oklahoma City traffic accident attorneys with Maples Law Firm.
