ASK A TROOPER By Sgt. Kathy Pederson MN State Patrol Dear Trooper Kathy: Something needs to be done about teen drivers. Driver's education isn't up to par. Why doesn't State Patrol train our kids? For law enforcement, of any type, to take over dri- ver's education you would have to triple our budget and person-power and do it again the following year. I often get asked, "What are we going to do about these inex- perienced drivers?" You are right, I have an answer. First the responsibility doesn't land in any one's lap outside the family. Driver's education provides base knowledge and skills. Parents and/or guardians need to pick up the ball. They are responsible to pro- vide their teen with as much guidance based on their experience as possible. The law requires a minimum of 30 hours of supervised time during this period. Much more is needed. Here are some suggestions and tools to make this a suc- cessful experience for all. First, make the commitment to educate and supervise your teen and be the key per- son in this endeavor. Remember the most danger- ous thing your teen is going to do, on a daily basis, is get in a car, whether as a pas- senger or a driver. Limit peers and friends, in the vehicle. One friend, in the car, with your teen increases the odds of a crash by 30%. More than one increases the odds by over 70%. (Friends are too dis- tracting, for a beginner.) Teen's driving will resemble the adults they are with the most, set a good example. Take the time to drive with your teen in all situations: day, night, rain, snow, etc. Discuss the issues surround- ing each situation while doing so. When beginning to drive, on their own, restrict them to daylight and good conditions, graduate to hard- er conditions as they gain experience and confidence. Teens burn the candle at both ends; DO NOT let them drive if they haven't gotten enough sleep. Distracted and/or drowsy drivers are as dangerous as impaired driv- ers. Choose vehicles for safe- ty, not vanity. One hundred fifty-three teens died in crashes last year. Crashes are their num- ber one cause of death; this is almost three times the sui- cide rate, three times the cancer rate and almost 10 times the murder rate. Parents need to restrict priv- ileges of their teens or the police will! TEEN DRIVERS Statistics show that the top six driving risk factors for teens are: Inattentiveness-Driver inattention and distraction is the most common contribut- ing factor, in multiple vehicle crashes. Excessive speed- Illegal]unsafe speed is the most common contributing factor in single vehicle crash- es, for drivers. Teens in par- ticular have difficulty adjust- ing speed to driving condi- tions. Failure to wear safety belt-Properly wearing a seat Jeffers Petroglyphs "Geology Discovery Day" examines rock formations belt reduces the risk of fatal injury to the front seat pas- senger occupants by 45% in a car and 60o in a light truck. Fatigue-A person who has been awake for 24 hours experiences impairment nearly equal to a blood alco- hol concentration of .10%. And, teens often don't get enough sleep. Not checking traffic before pulling out-Most crashes involving teens occur at intersections, because of their inexperience judging distance and speed. We all should stop completely, look, look again, and go if clear. We tend to do it all at once without a complete stop. Driving with other teens- The presence of passengers strongly increases crash risk. The more passengers - the greater the risk is. Information provided by the Department of Public Safety.
