With so many factors at play, fatal crashes are among the biggest fear parents have to face when it comes to their child driving on their own.
Many parents have learned the hard way how important driving safety is for teens. Take for example, Ohio dad Brock Dietrich. In 2013, he suffered the loss of his 17-year-old daughter, Sydnee Williams. She died when she used her cell phone while driving. She also was not wearing a seat belt, and she ended up being thrown from the car, suffering a fatal head trauma.
Besides distracted driving, speeding is a deadly habit that teenagers practice when they get behind the wheel. Take rising senior Donovan Tessmer for example. Out with his friends, his girlfriend was driving and speeding. She lost control of her car and hit a tree. Donovan was ejected from the car and killed instantly. The sad reality is that in 14,000 fatal teen driving crashes in the past five years. More than 4,200 of them involved speeding.
