There are millions upon millions of teenage drivers on the road. While everyone has to start somewhere, it's important to note that younger drivers often find it more difficult to remain safe.
Teenagers between the ages of 16-19 have the highest average crash and traffic violation rate over any other age group of drivers. There are more rules and regulations for young drivers and with good reason. The state of California bans the use of cellphones for anyone under the age of 18; even in hands-free mode. Cellphones are a known distraction for all drivers, since teenagers are less experienced drivers they tend to gain a false sense of confidence behind the wheel (feeling invincible) which makes them more susceptible to give into distractions.
