Teen Vehicle Choice – Missouri Driver Safety

Considering the fact that automobile accidents are the leading cause of death for teenagers, it is important to look for a vehicle that will keep your teen safe. While buying your teenager a safe car will not minimize their risk of an accident, it hopefully will maximize their safety in a crash. According to the News-Sentinel, midsize sedans are the best cars for teenage drivers. Midsize sedans cannot only handle the impact of a collision, but also sized well for steering away from trouble.

It’s recommended that the sedans feature small four-cylinder engines, anti-lock brakes, stability control and front-wheel-drive. Similarly, on the vehicle’s inside, try to pick an interior that’s not distracting and has simple controls. Of the Insurance Institute’s top safety picks for 2011, cars such as the Volkswagen Jetta, the Kia Optima and the Hyundai Sonata are recommended to keep teen drivers safe while on the roads.

Purchasing a safe car for your teenager can help to ensure that he or she from other drivers. However, it cannot protect them from careless and inattentive motorists. If you or someone you know has been injured in a car crash due to the negligence of another driver, it is imperative that you talk with a Missouri injury lawyer today.
