Why Teen Drivers Cause Car Accidents

Written by Malman Law, reviewed by Steve J. Malman.

Being able to drive their own car is something every teenager looks forward to once they get their driver’s license. Unfortunately, however, teen drivers often cause accidents that may otherwise be avoided by older or more experienced drivers. If a teen driver hit you and caused you injury, you should let a lawyer evaluate your rights.

Reasons Why Teen Drivers Cause Accidents

According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, teen drivers between the ages of 16 years and 19 are more likely to be involved in motor vehicle crashes than any other age group. There are several factors that contribute to this higher risk of crashes by teen drivers, which include the following:

1. Driver inexperience

As with everything else in life, people get better with a task on hand the more experience they have, and driving is no exception. Studies show that teen drivers with less than two years of driving experience do not have the proper skills and readiness to recognize and properly respond to dangerous situations.

There is a higher risk of crash accidents during the first months after earning a license. This is because newly minted teen drivers are excited to hit the roads without restrictions and often cause accidents because their driving skills are not at the level where they can always avoid the hazards of driving.
