Shortly after it gained widespread popularity, mobile phone text messaging emerged as one of the leading causes of traffic accidents in the United States. As demonstrated by this clip from The Today Show, the consequences of what many drivers believe to be harmless text messaging have had a painful toll on the lives of tens of thousands of Americans.
By focusing on a few specific examples of how the lives of many Americans have been lost and the lives of others forever changed as the result of drivers’ decisions to take their eyes off the road to type or read a text message, this news clip is something that many viewers can connect with and everyone should watch.
Texting while driving is an especially large problem among younger drivers. If you would like for your teenager to receive driver’s training at a driving school that emphasizes the importance of avoiding distractions while on the road, call Top Driver at (888) 471-5418.

When driver education is provided by the high school, students have convenient and quality access to the training and education they need to become safe and skilled drivers. At Top Driver, we offer top-quality driver education services to high schools in the Chicagoland area through our High School Partnership Program. Let’s take a look at the benefits of bringing driver education into high schools:
Convenient for Students
Driver education is an important part of every teenager’s life. By bringing driver education into high schools, students are provided with convenient access to quality driver education courses. When driver training is offered directly at their school, it will be easier for students and parents to make time for this important service. The classes can be seamlessly incorporated into the high school schedule, and will be offered at an affordable price for every student.
Every teen must pass a driver’s education course to receive their driver’s license when they turn 16. When driver education is provided by the high school, these young drivers will have access to the best quality resources and instructors. This educational experience will prepare teen drivers for a lifetime of safe and responsible driving.
When driver education is brought into high schools, parents will have the opportunity to become more involved in their teen’s driver training. By coordinating with the teen’s class schedule, driver’s education at the high school will be a convenient option for parents and students who are juggling multiple extracurricular activities. Parents will also receive updates and reports on their teen’s progress in the driver’s education program.
The Top Driver Driving School features a High School Partnership Program that provides top quality driver education to local high schools. We will provide the instructors and curriculum, and will hold classes in a classroom right on the high school campus.

When your teen becomes a newly licensed driver, he or she should be aware of the dangerous consequences that can result from a driving accident. Every year, many teenagers in the U.S. are killed by fatal driving accidents. As a parent, you can help your teen learn the safe driving techniques that will make them a safe and responsible driver. Let’s examine some of the fatal mistakes made by teen drivers:
Speeding is the number one cause of fatal driving accidents for teens. Teen drivers are more likely to speed than any other group of drivers, and speeding can quickly turn into a dangerous driving situation. When a driver is speeding, it is harder to judge and respond to obstacles on the road. Speeding drivers will also tend to leave less room between their vehicle and the vehicle in front of them, making it harder to avoid a collision.
Not Paying Attention
Because teen drivers are less experienced than older drivers, they have a harder time noticing dangers on the road ahead. Even if your teen driver is paying attention, they may be concentrating more on their driving than looking out for danger. Many teen driving fatalities are caused because the driver was unable to respond to a dangerous road obstacle in time to avoid a collision.
Seatbelts are designed to keep the driver and passengers in a car safe and secure in the event of a collision. Teenage drivers are less likely to wear their seatbelts than other drivers. In more than half of the fatal driving accidents involving teens each year, either the driver or passengers were not wearing their seatbelts.
At Top Driver, we can teach your teen driver the skills needed to drive safely and responsibly. In addition to teaching teens safe driving skills, we offer a comprehensive Parent Training Program that will help you teach your teen how to drive. To learn more about enrolling your teenager in our driver training program, call us at (888) 471-5418.

Many dangerous auto accidents are caused by driving mistakes that could have been easily avoided. Dangerous swerving is one of the most common mistakes made by drivers. To avoid having to swerve to avoid a collision, it is important to always pay attention to the road ahead. Another auto accident mistake to avoid is driving while fatigued. Drowsy driving is as dangerous as driving while intoxicated and can lead to a dangerous accident. If you are faced with a potential collision, overcorrecting is another mistake to avoid. When you panic and mistakenly overcorrect, your vehicle can swerve out of control and cause a dangerous accident.
At Top Driver, we teach safe driving techniques that help teens develop into intelligent and responsible drivers. Our Chicagoland driver training centers feature state-of-the-art technology and personalized instruction services.
