Think safety first: getting a car for a teen driver

When your teenager gets old enough to drive, the chances are good that he or she will want a car. If you can afford it and decide to get your teen a car, think safety first. Teenagers are much more likely to be in accidents than older, more experienced drivers, and you want to protect your child as much as you possibly can, even though he or she is growing up.

They’ll be protected as much as possible if they are involved in an accident, no matter who is at fault.

It’s a good idea to make sure that you take specific features into account. Does the vehicle have airbags? Are there shoulder-style seatbelts in the back? Can the vehicle roll over easily? How dangerous are convertibles, really? There are so many things that a person should find out about, so do your research and don’t just assume that the biggest car you can find is the safest one. There are many smaller cars today that are quite safe, and they might be better for a driver who’s still a little uncertain behind the wheel.
