Connecticut revises teen driver safety course

While it is of course possible for anyone who gets behind the wheel of a vehicle to be involved in a car accident in Connecticut, there are certain demographics that most likely come to mind first for most, such as teen drivers. Their inexperience and tendency to make impulsive decisions are just two factors that contribute to this. 

In Connecticut, all 16 and 17-year-olds who want to get a driver’s license, have to take a parent-teen safe driving course. The first state in the United States to require the two hour course attended by both teens as well as their parents, recently, the Department of Motor Vehicles refreshed and revised the curriculum used in that driving course. The focus of the new curriculum is how parents can help teens to reduce risks while driving. In addition to printed resources, a supplemental video and an activity guide were created.

Even when a teen undergoes driver safety training it is possible that he or she could still be involved in a crash. When someone is hurt in an accident that is the result of the negligence of another driver, it is possible that driver could find that he or she is being sued. This is true regardless of the age of the person behind the wheel.

As is the case in any personal injury lawsuit, the best course of action is to consult with a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. This will allow that individual to gather the evidence necessary to build a case.
