For many young drivers, one of the best experiences they can have is passing their driving test, and pulling up outside a friends house to pick them up, and take to the roads with a car full of friends, fully enjoying the freedom driving your own car can grant you.
However many younger drivers may not be aware of the potential risks of having passengers in the car with you – particularly when they are of a similar age to yourself. Research shows that driving with peers in the car can render you up to four times as likely to have an accident, something that you certainly don’t want to be increasing the likelihood of this early in your driving career.
As the driver you are responsible for the passengers in your vehicle – make sure that everyone is wearing their seatbelt and behaving themselves in your car, otherwise you are simply putting yourself and your passengers at risk.
Safe driving from Britannia!
