Teenage Drivers: Celebrity Advocate Recommends More Practice

According to crash statistics, American teenagers are at the most risk of suffering fatal injuries during the first year after they begin driving. Nancy O'Dell, a well-known co-host on a network show that covers with entertainment stories, took to the Internet this week to advocate for better awareness of the dangers facing teen drivers.

O'Dell pointed to the single biggest problem for teen drivers: inexperience. While safe driving skills are habitual for most of us, it's easy to forget that it took a lot of practice to develop those behaviors.

This is exactly the fix that O'Dell and many other teen safety experts recommend-as much supervised practice driving as possible. According to one safety organization, parents should be spending at least half an hour with teen drivers every week. Parents could also focus on specific safety techniques. For those of us in the Midwest, winter weather driving might be a particularly important skill to teach young drivers early on.

The high rate of teen car accidents indicates that this time is a good investment in motor vehicle safety.
