Teenage drivers must know these things...

Teenage drivers must know these things...

Great advice from out friends at Indiana Electric Cooperatives. 

For an inexperienced teenaged driver, wrecking the family car is almost a rite of passage. The only way for young drivers to gain experience is by getting behind the wheel and putting miles behind them.

Some dangers, though, cannot be learned from personal “experience.” Take this example: an accident involving a utility pole. How the driver and passengers handle themselves in those moments after the car comes to a stop may mean the difference between life and death.
