Driving Safe Cars during Prom and Graduation Period

There is always a sharp peak in auto accident statistics in springtime, which coincides with prom and graduation celebrations. In Canada's Lower Mainland alone, around 1,200 adolescents get injured while four are killed in auto accidents during this period. This is a massive percentage among the 3,000 young people who are killed every year.

Apparently, these statistics go up during prom and graduation period which happens from March to May. It is also around this time that Spring Break arrives, giving teenagers a carefree feeling. Carried away by the illusion of immortality, some young drivers become reckless and believe they cannot possibly get hurt or killed. Sadly, road accidents remain one of the top causes of death among Canadian youth.

While proper education, discipline, and parental advice can steer young people into the right direction, parents can best ensure their children’s road safety by making sure they drive vehicles known for their safety features. Your friendly local car dealer can recommend the safest models available today which are less likely to skid and are better able to resist problems related to mobility and visibility.

Motor accidents arise out of different factors, yet the most common have to do with driving behavior. According to the Moms against Drunk Driving in Canada (MADD Canada), 40% of fatalities every year involve drunk driving. To protect drivers and passengers from fatal injuries, it is best to choose that are built strong and well-equipped with safety features.

Sherwood Park car dealers who adhere to the standards of national traffic regulations can make excellent recommendations on the safest cars in their inventory that address specific driving problems that contribute to automobile accidents. For instance, cars equipped with traction control and antilock brake systems avoid the loss of control especially on wet, slippery roads with potholes. These features also help reduce speed and keep young drivers from exceeding speed limits.

Sherwood Park car dealers are also aware of the rise in visual impairment because of prolonged usage of computers, electronic books, and mobile phones. They may suggest additional devices like defrosters, defoggers, and rearview cameras, and navigational devices. These tools help young drivers maintain their focus while driving so they do not miss a turn or miscalculate a maneuver.

Seatbelts and airbags are by now mandatory in most areas, yet some people choose to either forego or forget to wear them. Fortunately, some Sherwood Park used cars have seatbelt alarms that send off a continual alarm signal until passengers put their seatbelts on. For more information on essential vehicle safety features, see Carsp.ca and TIRF.ca.
