Young people are bad drivers
OK, I really do not know that one-sided. There are good teen drivers. But what I want is that their lack of driving experience often leads to difficulties on the road.
I own an insurance agency in the Phoenix metro area. A client asked if I would teach her 16 years old son to drive.
Knowing there is no father figure at home, I agreed. It would give me an opportunity to access these boys so well and knowhim some time with a male figure, was something that I understood what is lacking in his life.
As Chris (as I call him) and I are then in the car, I asked Chris if he had not yet gone. The answer was “yes.” He and my mother had gone a few times, but she’s too nervous to continue.
Chris rounded the first corner and almost hit a parked car. He’s smack the curb around the next corner and nearly took two fairly large barrels, trash as we moved along the residential street. It was difficultclear that Chris did not realize he had mastered the steering wheel and not vice versa. Another car came from the opposite direction, and it has always avoided me at the wheel on the tip of a collision. When Chris turned a corner, he either pulled too tight or made a big loop. Both made me very nervous.
I patiently tried to coax him drive carefully in view of the future plans his approach to oncoming lights and turns.
Chris better. He improved week afterWeek.
Then I noticed a CHANGE.
As his confidence grew and his speed. That’s what I realized is probably the primary mistake most teenage drivers do. They confuse experience with quality.
Chris pulled out all the green light, as if it were a race. He stayed in the same way shocks. I felt like Dale Earnhardt was behind the wheel. My requests to “slow down” fell on deaf ears.
