Many people know that teens are the most at-risk age group among drivers. That’s why their insurance rates are so high and why there’s so much educational material and enforcement campaigns aimed at them. Their inexperience and potentially aggressive driving habits significantly increase their risk of crashes, not to mention their penchant for texting, Snapchatting, or otherwise using their phones while behind the wheel.

But teen drivers aren’t the only young drivers who are at risk. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, half of all speeding-related deaths involve drivers 21-35. That means that even drivers with a higher level of maturity and several years of experience are still likely to exceed speed limits, putting themselves and others at risk.

In addition, driving while impaired is also more common among younger drivers, especially those who are of age to legally drink in bars and restaurants. Not everyone goes out to become legally intoxicated, but many drivers who have one too many are reluctant to call cabs or use rideshare services to get home. That can be a potentially expensive or even fatal mistake, as the risk of dying in a car crash increases significantly when drivers are over the legal limit.

While there are plenty of age-related risks when it comes to driving, such as impaired vision, slower reaction times, and reduced attention span, younger drivers aren’t immune to risks that are mostly unique to their age group. If you’re a young driver, avoid distractions, don’t speed, and never drive if you’re over the limit.

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
