January is Teen Driving Awareness Month and we can all agree that teen driving is an important topic to discuss. As you ring in the new year with new resolutions, consider taking important safety precautions to protect not only yourself but your teen driver as well. 

Protecting your teen driver

Nowadays, there are various causes for teen car accidents including inexperience, distractions, speeding, etc. With inadequate auto insurance, you run the risk of facing extreme consequences in the case of a car accident. 

Here are a couple of factors to take into consideration as to why we recognize Teen Driving Awareness Month: 

  • Protecting lives by never texting and driving  
  • Spread awareness of the consequences of drinking and driving 
  • Encourage family and friends to use their seatbelts 
  • Encouraging teens to adopt safe driving habits
  • Prevent distracted driving by setting your phone to Do Not Disturb mode while driving

Risks of not having auto insurance

Potential consequences of driving without the right coverage can cost you license suspension, a costly ticket, and of course no financial protection in case of an accident. The risk for any teenage driver is four times greater than experienced drivers which is why it is important to secure auto insurance before you turn over car keys to your teen.

As we begin 2020, considering adequate auto insurance that will benefit you and your child’s need in the long-run should be a top priority on your new year’s resolutions list. Learn more about how we can help to insure you. Call 760.341.2345 or visit our website to get a free quote today.
