Teen Driving Is Hazardous
Teenage Driving is Hazardous
Around two in the morning, four 16-year-old boys were left a party where they were drinking and began driving home. The driver only had his license for a week. Additionally, he was tired and fog and rain created and extremely low visibility. The other three, enjoying their time laughing and joking around, distracted the driver from the road. The driver, speeding down the road, began to fall asleep. He slowly edged toward the six-foot ditch on the side of the wet, saturated road. He suddenly awoke and swerved to the left. The car hydroplaned and flipped over. None of the passengers had on seatbelts. The car rolled twice and landed on its side; none of them survived.

Their limited knowledge of the road, as well as inattention, becomes a powerful potent for disaster. Teen driving is the number one leading cause of death in the United States (Wims 1). That?s 5000 dead teens per year (Robinson 1). Though many precautions are taken
