Young drivers have some of the highest insurance rates around, and a big part of this has to do with the fact that statistically speaking, young drivers are more likely to take part in risk taking activities behind the wheel. According to research, this is especially true of young male drivers who are in the car with their peers.

The idea that your child may be hood surfing, speeding, driving stunts, drag racing, or taking part in any dangerous activities can be hard to believe. However, the parents of teenagers who are seriously injured or even killed by taking part in these activities often tell authorities that they had no idea their child was involved in these types of situations. Children may be injured the first time they try an unsafe driving maneuver. In some cases, too, children go well out of their way to keep their more risk taking activities a secret from their parents.

You may think your children are too young to talk to about car safety before the age of 16 or so, but it is one of the most important conversations you will have with your kids, regardless of their age. The reality is that long before your children have their learner’s permit, they will be driven around by other people, including family, friends, babysitters, and more. They are still at risk of auto accidents, long before they can drive. In fact, car accidents in Hollywood and other South Florida communities are a leading cause of injuries and fatalities involving children.

If your children are under the age of 21 and cannot legally purchase or drink alcohol, it doesn’t mean you don’t have to worry about drunk driving. Underage drunk driving accidents in Homestead, Hollywood, Miami, and other Florida communities, unfortunately, are all too common. Many parents assume their child would never drink while a minor, but it is in fact common practice. Children often face considerable pressure from their peers and many start drinking much, much earlier than parents realize.

In addition, children may get into a car with older friends or friends’ siblings, who may be under the influence. Some children who are injured in drunk driving accidents involving an inebriated and underage driver are not always the ones who are drinking. In some cases, they are simply in the wrong place at the wrong time but may still pay a price in serious injuries.
