AAA: Teens Most Likely to Crash in First Month of Solo Driving

South Carolina Accident Lawyers

A new study conducted by the University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center, on behalf of the AAA Foundation, found that teens are at the greatest risk of getting into a crash during their first month of solo driving.  For the frantic parents out there, there is some hope. The risk of getting into an accident drops drastically after one to two years of experience behind the wheel.

The study also stated that during the first month of solo driving, teens are 50 percent more likely to be involved in an accident than in their entire first year, and twice as likely to wreck than after their second year of experienced driving.

The most common mistakes that caused crashes were failing to reduce speed, inattention and failure to yield. These mistakes accounted for approximately 57 percent of the crashes in which teens were at least partly to blame during their first month of solo driving.
