Earlier this month, another study confirmed what many PA parents already know. Passengers can be distracting for a Pennsylvania teen driver — or a young person in any state. The study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that speeding, late night driving, drinking and driving, and fatal accidents increased when teen drivers had passengers with them in their vehicles. This data supplements similar findings by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety released last spring.
For parents and teen drivers, the message is clear. It is important not to have other teen passengers in the car with a teen driver. It is important for new drivers to concentrate solely on driving safely.
It is also important for anyone who is injured in a Pennsylvania car accident to contact an experienced Reading personal injury attorney for help protecting legal rights and potential recoveries.
