Maryland Personal Injury Lawyers: MVA Teen Driving Safety Initiative StartsOctober 20, 2016
Teen driving safety ranks as a growing concern nationwide due to the increase in fatalities among teen drivers. After noting a 75 percent increase from 2014 to 2015 in the state, the Maryland Vehicle Association (MVA) is committed to lowering the fatality rate. They are introducing an initiative to parents and teens about driving safety measures called 5 to Drive, part of Maryland’s Rookie Driver program.
5 to Drive is comprised of five specific safety recommendations to ensure teen driving safety including no cell phone use while driving; no extra passengers aboard; no speeding; no drinking alcohol before or during driving; and advising teens to always wear seat belts when in a vehicle. Parents are encouraged to review these teen driving safety tips with their teens and cite their importance.
