Teenagers Need Roadside Assistance

Teen DriverMotorists who talk on the cell phone while driving are, to the same extent, impaired just like a drunk driver. Unfortunately, this is only one of many distractions that teen motorists face while driving. They have a tendency to multi-task while driving, and this puts them in danger of accidents that cannot only harm themselves, but others as well.

Teens have more distractions to deal with in today’s modern times. They are switching CDs, using iPods, and are getting distracted by the technology on the dashboards in modern vehicles. Another dangerous activity that teens often engage in while driving is texting. 1 out of 5 teenagers admit to texting while driving. These kinds of statistics make it essential for teens to be signed up with a roadside assistance program.

According to experts, our brains do not have the capability to drive while multi-tasking because driving is too unpredictable. You can never guess when a cyclist might swerve in front of your car or when a deer might dash across the road. These are dangerous events, especially when the driver is distracted.

With the distractions in these modern times, we need to take precautionary measures to keep teen drivers safe. Parents can help with this by enforcing rules with their teens and signing them up with roadside assistance.
