If you were one of the lucky ones, you escaped your younger years without having ever gotten into an accident or receiving a traffic ticket. If you weren't so lucky, keep in mind that drivers under the age of 20 are three times more likely to get into an accident, according to the CDC. No wonder insurance costs so much when you're a teenager!
Before you pass the keys to the family Corolla or Venza over to the newest driver in your family, take a look at this guide from the folks over at The Simple Dollar, who have compiled a bunch of useful information for parents and teenagers on safe driving. They include:
