Comparing Texas Teen Driving to Other StatesAugust 9, 2016 | in Defensive Driving Online, Everyday Driver, news
According to WalletHub’s “Best and Worst States for Teen Drivers,” Texas performed well in the categories of impaired driving laws and laws protecting the occupant of vehicles. Texas is also the top state when it comes to prevalence and effectiveness of impaired driving laws.
However, Texas came in close to last in presence of distracted driving laws, coming in at number 42 of 50.
Jill Gonzalez of WalletHub explains, “Texas already has some policies in place that aim to prevent drunk driving and improve safety conditions, such as impaired driving laws and red-light and speeding-camera laws. But the state’s government should try to make an effort to make these laws enforceable and effective so that the safety conditions improve even further.”
The state will continue to work with lawmakers and law enforcement to lower distracted driving among teens as well as implement better educational programs in driver’s education.
