Automobile collisions are far too common in North Carolina, and the reasons can be wide-ranging. Intoxicated, distracted and tired motorists can all pose significant hazards. One reason a driver may be dangerous when on the road is because he or she is inexperienced.
According to the Center for Disease Control or CDC, teen drivers are more likely to fail to recognize dangerous situations. They are also more likely than their older counterparts to speed and follow too closely. Making matters worse, when teens drink, they are at greater risk for an accident than an older adult.
