Teen traffic deaths up recently in Colorado

Motor vehicle accidents sometimes claim the lives of teens. Unfortunately, statistics point to such tragedies being more common lately here in Colorado.

According to state numbers, 67 teens lost their lives in traffic accidents in the state last year. This was biggest annual total in the last decade.

This underscores the dangers teens can faceĀ out on the roadsĀ and the importance of teens driving safely. These are key points to keep in mind with the school year starting up, as many teens in the state drive to and from school.

The state recently kicked off a new campaign aimed at promoting safe driving among teens. It is a social media campaign primarily targeted at encouraging seat belt use and the avoidance of distracted driving. How effective do you think this campaign will prove to be?

Parents of teens may want to take the starting weeks of the school year as an opportunity to remind their kids about how to act safely behind the wheel. This includes talking to their teens about the dangers of distracted driving and the importance of following all traffic safety rules.

This time of year, it can be important for all drivers to give careful thought to traffic safety. After all, how safe teens are when driving to and from school is not just impacted by how they act, but also by the conduct of the drivers around them.

One hopes that this school year will prove a safe one for all teen drivers here in Colorado.
