10 Safest Cars for Teen DriversMarch 10, 2015 | in Defensive Driving Online, Defensive Driving Tips, Driver Safety For You & Your Family
When it comes to deciding what kind of car your teen should drive, there are probably two main things that you will consider: safety and cost. Safety first and foremost, because you want your precious cargo to be protected, especially as they get used to driving themselves. And cost because, let’s face it, you don’t want to spend a lot of money on a brand new car that could easily be wrecked in a few years’ time.
