Teen Drivers Short Attention Span
16-year-olds have higher crash rates than drivers of any other age.
56% of teens said they talk on the phone while driving.
Statistics show that 16 and 17-year-old driver death rates increase with each additional passenger.
As a driving instructor for teens one of the major problems is overall inattentiveness.
I have to keep the student engaged or some tend to drift off thinking about school or other things
I recently picked up a student from Green Valley High School. As soon as the student started off I knew something was on their mind other than driving. I had to brake or we would have gone thru a stop sign.
Looking straight ahead thinking about something other than the task at hand.
