Safe Driving Wristbands for Teens

Promote Responsibility with Safe Driving Wristbands

The one thing that teenagers most look forward to as they get older is also one of the most dangerous things for them to do. Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for teens. How can you help? Safe driving campaigns can make a difference for teenagers who are approaching driving age, or those who are already behind the wheel.

Safe Driving Wristbands

Each May, teenagers across the country come together during Global Youth Traffic Safety Month™ learn about the importance of safe driving. Leaders of safety events develop and deliver traffic safety education projects and support law enforcement to protect teen drivers. Global Youth Traffic Safety Month™ is sponsored and promoted by the National Organizations for Youth Safety

If you're planning an event to promote safe driving for teenagers, wristbands can help you get your message out to many teens. Wristbands from AmazingWristbands.com can be customized with your specific message. You may choose a generic message such as "Committed to Safe Driving" or "Alive at 25," or you may want something for your specific event, such as "Safe Drivers in Dayton." All wristbands at Amazing Wristbands are made of comfortable, long-lasting, latex-free, and non-allergenic silicone.

Important Facts about Teen Driving

Many states have initiated graduated driver's license programs to reduce traffic accidents for teens. In these programs, teens must hold a permit for a year, take a driver's safety course, and are restricted on the amount and type of driving they can do once they get their license. Research suggests that the most comprehensive graduated drivers licensing (GDL) programs are associated with reductions of 38% and 40% in fatal and injury crashes, respectively, among 16-year-old drivers

In 2010, about 2,700 teens in the United States aged 16–19 were killed and almost 282,000 were treated and released from emergency departments for injuries suffered in motor-vehicle crashes. Among teen drivers, those at especially high risk for motor vehicle crashes are:

  • Males: In 2010, the motor vehicle death rate for male drivers and passengers ages 16 to 19 was almost two times that of their female counterparts.
  • Teens driving with teen passengers: The presence of teen passengers increases the crash risk of unsupervised teen drivers. This risk increases with the number of teen passengers.
  • Newly licensed teens: Crash risk is particularly high during the first months of licensure.

What factors put teen drivers at risk?

  • Teens are more likely than older drivers to underestimate dangerous situations or not be able to recognize hazardous situations.
  • Teens are more likely than older drivers to speed and allow shorter headways (the distance from the front of one vehicle to the front of the next). The presence of male teenage passengers increases the likelihood of this risky driving behavior.
  • Among male drivers between 15 and 20 years of age who were involved in fatal crashes in 2010, 39% were speeding at the time of the crash and 25% had been drinking.
  • Compared with other age groups, teens have the lowest rate of seat belt use. In 2011, only 54% of high school students reported they always wear seat belts when riding with someone else.
  • Compared with other age groups, teens have the lowest rate of seat belt use.
  • At all levels of blood alcohol concentration (BAC), the risk of involvement in a motor vehicle crash is greater for teens than for older drivers.
