The Hard Facts on Teen Driving

According to the Ohio Department of Public Safety, 90,185 teenage drivers (ages 16-20) were involved in traffic accidents in 2005 alone, accounting for 15.1% of all traffic accidents that occurred on Ohio roads. In nearly 64% of those accidents, the teen driver was found to be at fault. Most frightening, teenage drivers were involved in nearly 13% of all fatal traffic accidents that year. The conclusion? A lack of experience puts young drivers at risk behind the wheel, which can end in tragic results.

The Solution

The Honda Teen Defensive Driving Program prepares young motorists for real world situations by exposing them to potentially hazardous situations in a safe and controlled environment. Our philosophy is "it's better to teach good, safe driving habits now than break bad habits that could have severe consequences later.
