Most teen car crashes occur because of driver inexperience. Research shows that clocking hours behind the wheel, with an experienced driver present, increases a teenager’s confidence and capability to react in an emergency. We speak with two advocates for the University of Maryland Children’s Hospital “Practice Driving with Your Teen” sticker campaign: emergency pediatric-medicine resident Dr. Lahila-Carina Ojeda, and Cliff Tompkins, whose 7-year-old son died in a crash involving a teenager’s inexperience. Learn more about the campaign here and connect to an emergency driving course here.
