Carrying out Vehicle Inspections to Ensure the Safety of Teenage Drivers

Tell your teenage daughter she's getting her own car, and you'll see her get all giddy about how you're the best parent in the world. Sadly, a teenager's enthusiasm toward owning a vehicle often results in skipping safety inspections – which is a "foul" in the car buyer's guide book. Teenagers are usually far more interested in adding chic features like satellite radio and custom speakers, which aren’t helpful in the event of a crash.

Car crashes take the lives of more than 5,000 teenagers each year in Canada. Based on reports from Car-Accidents.com, drivers aged 16 to 19 have the highest risk of being involved in a road accident as they are FOUR TIMES likely than other drivers to crash. Most of these accidents are caused by speeding and tailgating. To avoid having your daughter join the camp of road casualties, vehicle inspections prior to purchase is a must.

Safety should always be on top of anyone's car shopping priorities. Unfortunately, however, it often comes out at the bottom. There are three main reasons that most people remove inspections out of the picture: most consumers have no idea good car inspections are readily available, many car buyers don't want to pay extra, and some want to avoid haggling with dealers.

Inspections are indispensible, especially when buying used vehicles. Although used cars are restored to optimum driving condition, there's still a slim chance something can go terribly wrong. In addition, inspections guarantee you'll get every bang for the buck.

According to Alberta Traffic Collision Statistics, car accidents in Edmonton have plummeted more than 10 percent. But this doesn't justify everyone can go buying cars without running a full vehicle inspection. If you want to run from the hassles of inspecting the car bit by bit, it's best to bring a mechanic when buying an Edmonton used car. Mechanics can easily pinpoint any defect, ensuring the vehicle is suitable for driving.

Contrary to what many believe, inspecting Edmonton used cars could be quicker than television commercials. With a little planning and a checklist, you won't even break a sweat. What's important is to ensure the vehicle is equipped with safety features like airbags, seatbelts, antilock brake systems, and traction control.

While owning a car is a part of the teenage dream; carrying out inspections before purchase ensures it doesn't turn into a nightmare. Fort McMurray car dealerships can help you find the safest and most reliable car for your daughter. Log on to ConsumerReports.org for an in-depth car buying guide.
