When there's a news story about a car crash involving teenagers, do you think it affects the way that other teens drive? Or is this the sort of thing they ignore, thinking accidents only happen to other people?
Carl Azuz, Anchor
I believe that some people get affected by car crashes. They may drive more carefully to avoid and accident. Other people ignore the accidents.
I think teenages will change the way the drive when they see teenages their age die when they get in car asidents beacuse theu what to text in drive or driving while they are drunk.
I think that if such a major accident happens then other teens who might drive reckless will be more careful while driving.
I agree with you Rohan. I think that if a teenager gets in an accident and other teenagers see that, they will drive more carefully so they dont get in an accident.
I think that teenagers see the articles of the car crashes and think that they wont text while driving or be more aware of the road and then forget, and go on with their bad habits. There should really be some type of eye opener for them because ever since newer and better phones have been coming out and more teenagers have been buying them, there has been more car accidents. They dont know that what they are doing is going to affect them untill they're in that scenario where they can loose their life.
It should, because then we are more aware about these cases and what not to do when we're driving. It's not just someone that are in these accidents, because you never know if you will become that someone one day.
I think that it does affect the way other teens drive, but with the world being what it is, i believe thoes who were brought up properly will be affected than thoes who don"t. But it could go either way, it just depends on who you are!
I think that stuff like this can happen to people like me. But as long as they are careful it can't hurt them.
When teenagers turn 16, their first instinct will be to get a driver's license. Other accidents will be ignored.
Stories that that scare me. I would not want to put my self or my friends in a situation like that. You never know what might happen.
It effects me because I would never want my brother to die in a car crash. So It makes me want my Dad to drive to safely.
My mom says most accidents happen because the teens are reckless. They speed too much, do crazy sharp turns, and don't wear seat belts. I also think this is what causes accidents with teens.
Most teens nowadays think they're "invincible" because they're young. Accidents they see on the news won't change the way they drive.
I think it is something that teen driver ignore, They still would drive safe but like what happened on Sunday their was just an accident waiting to happen.
i think that teens should obey the law and drive safely and maybe we could avoid all these car crashes
I believe that when teen drivers find out about these tragic car accidents they are a little more cautious for a week or two! After a few weeks they are likely to forget about it and will keep driving the way they normally do!
When teenagers think they will never have accident they would show off on the road and think they would not have a crash and end up having one.
I think they would ignore it until it happens to them. I would ignore an accident .
I think it does affect the way teenagers drive, but they are still sometimes wild at the wheel. It worries me that teens drive like this.
I think it affects how other teens drive because what happened to them can happen to anyone really.It makes them start to think if they want that to happen to themselves and put others in danger.
Yes it will affect there driving
I think teenagers need to keep their eyes on the road. Not on phones.
Yes, because it shows them that driving dangerously can kill them, and it's better to drive safe than to risk your life over something most likely not worth it
It depends by what kind of driver you are. If you pay more attention to driving and speed you could help cause less wrecks unlike someone who is looking around and speeding instead of paying much attention to driving.
I think people just need to be a little bit more careful and try not to be so "cool" around their friends.
Teenagers shouldn't put more than the maxInum amount of people in a car. It is unsafe because the extra people won't have seat belts.
The more I hear about teen car accidents, the more I feel obligated to drive safely. The safety of my friends means more to me than the thrill that comes with being reckless.
It affects how people drive because they hopefully learn from those mistakes so it doesn't happen to them.
Some teenagers might be more careful, but the majority of them think that they are more responsible and that it won't ever happen to them when the try something like that.
i don't drive yet...but when i do see my older cousins drive they do care about these incidents but only for about 5 minutes then they go back to being reckless and think they are indestructible. That's why i ride with my aunt and not my cousin.
I am an English teacher here in France and watch CNN news regularly; we always find it hard to believe that teenagers can drive from the age of 16 in the US; here the minimum age to get a licence is 18 , and there are far less accidents involving teenagers.... because they don't drive. This is how so many precious lives are spared.Hopefully when they get a bit older-two years at that age is quite significant in terms of maturity- they can be better drivers.
I think that people do listen to the news and stories like this. Although, they probably don't think about what they should do if they get involved in any kind of accident. People should create time to talk about things we are going to do if there was an emergency.
Absolutely. Hearing about car wrecks caused by carelessness and texting make me sick, and I know that when I begin driving, I will have these things in mind.
I think they think of it as like we think of a war in the Middle East, but when it happens to people closer to them, they will start to think about it more seriously.
i think maybe but they might try to ignore it so they can focus on the road but it still hurts on the inside
When a tragedy happens, we are all sad. The thing is, people are getting Drivers Licenses when they are not really good drivers. I think that DMV's across the country should only give Drivers' Licenses to responsible, able, citizens.,
I mean I don't think they pay it any mind.
I think every state should start a program to teach teenagers how to prevent car accident.
I think that the people who realize the consequences to a car accident drive are more cautious but still loose it after a while and don't think about it anymore. Some people probably just think they were being crazy and say that nothing like that would ever happen to them.
Yes. It will teach you a lesson.
Yes. You will see how upset it makes the people you love.
Hearing about teenagers in a car accident does not change the way teens drive. Everyone is a different type of driver – some are safe and some are not. Hearing about kids dying in another state does not affect me. I would drive the way I drive.
well yes because to think about drinking and driving it is a night mare we need more laws when i get my driver licence
i hope it will be a better place.
Personally, I am always affected by the death of teenagers in car crashes. My parents specifically bought my older truck for me in the event that if I did get in a wreck, I would be safer. However, even after a mock crash our school had before homecoming, I noticed little difference in the driving habits of other students. Even in the unfortunate event of a student at our school dying in a crash, after a few days it seemed that it made no impact to personal driving habits.
Slightly more than half of my students said that hearing news about teenage car crashes will change their driving, while others said it would not impact their driving.
I believe for a short time teens will be more cautious, but shortly after they will just go back to thinking that it only happens to others.
I was devastated by the car crash but at the same time I believe it is not their fault. The parents should of been more responsible for what they were doing. They should watch what they do.
A car crash does impact their caution in a good way most times but only by a long shot will they actual drive completely careful.
Even though the parents should have been keeping a better eye on their children, they shouldn't have to... They're old enough to drive they need to take responsibility for their actions.
It should effect the way they drive, but sadly not everyone listens
It should effect teens driving because they might know that person and now they are gone. Also they should NOT SPEED also don't put more teens in a car that can hold a certain amount of people in a car.
I think that the crash should make teens pay more attention because its neveracking
I think it's sad but we can't want better if we don't crack down on it.
I think that whenever we see a car crash we think that will never happen to us.
I think it only effects some teens that drive and the precautionary measures they take. More teens ignore the factors behind the cause of the crash such as overcrowding or distractions, not the actual crash itself.
I am one so I guess it is a good opinion but I think they will just ignore it I wouldn't but most would but mine is just one opinion though.
I think that if teenagers drove more carefully after hearing about this stuff there would be less crashes.
They probably hear about and think "Oh, that person was an idiot, i'm not, so that wont happen to me."
Unfortunately, I think teenagers aren't influenced overall by these crashes until they actually get into one or a friend or fanily member dies from a crash. I think it's horrible that something tragic has to happen before just a small group of people drive more carefully.
I think people pay attention to it, and they learn to be careful when driving. I've become nervous about learning to drive, even, because there's so many deaths from car crashes, especially for teens. By the way, where exactly in Ohio did this happen? I live in Ohio, and I want to make sure no one I know was involved in this accident.
Im gonna be driving in about 2-3 years, and I will be happy to have my permit and be driving on the streets, BUT this incident hopefully will show teenagers TODAY to drive more cautiously.
At first it might take effect for a little while but after a day or two they might go back to the same driving style as befor.
yes it does change people mind too drive car for teens because they know when some people die by car crashes so they drive better that they don't get crashed
No it doesn't make teenagers drive differently. I say that because teenagers think there perfect drivers and they think that other teen drivers suck at driving. So the teens say " it wont happen to me. I'm a good driver ".
no it doesn't make them change because some teenagers think it only happens to other people. some people think there good drivers and they wont get into any car crashes. some people think it just happens to other people but it happens to alot of teenagers.
It does not change the way how they drive because i think most teenagers want to have fun. so while they are having fun they don't think whats going to happen next. That is what i think.
No it doesn't affect how teenagers drive. Teenagers will ignore this because teens talk and text so they think i'm not going to get in a car crash and die but that's not true everybody dies someplace and somewhere. So I think teenagers should be more cautious while they drive.
I do not think that car crashes to teenager change the way they drive because most of the still drive the same way. Even though not all teenager drive like that I believe that the age that people can get their lisens is at the age 21. Many of kid drive and get into car crashes and maybe if they are older they will be more safe.
I don't think that makes teenager a better driver many of them just think that it,ll never happen to them.
I think teens do get affected by teen car crashes because they never know when it might happen to them.
I think that people who thinks they could drive very good think they won't crash. But watching that video i thiink they should start to not going fast.
I think that some teenagers that drive pay attention to what they are doing. Also other teenagers think that may not happen to them.
Yes, I believe that it affects other teenagers because, it is that the other teenagers may get addicted when they watch television for example smoking kids follow the teenagers and when they grow up other kids start to follow those teenagers.
I think it won't make a difference because they think it won't happen to them. If it happens to someone else they think it is one in a thousand people die.
I think that since the teenagers got in a car crash with reckless driving it will change the way other teenager would drive and act better.The reason it would change of how they drive because it will change how they drive and act better,they would just be doing the same thing those teenagers did and get into a car crash and die and people don't want that to happen.
I think it matters the way teenagers drive because the speed limit that they are going on is to fast or they are driving after they drank alchhol .
I think it does not affect the teenagers, because if it does then there is no point of having too much accidents.
Yes I think it does affect how other teenagers drive, because when they see other teenager car crashes they might get scared and drive better.
I don't think they would really care if others would get into an acciedent . I think they couldn't care less about others acciedent . I think the teenagers are sometimes impossible to get through to because they would be wrapped up in their own world.
I think it would not make a difference because sometimes they think it won't happen to them. Sometimes they just ignore it.
i think that hearing stories of teenagers in car crashes does affect teenagers.the stories affect them by encouraging them to drive safe.
well i think that it does affect the way teenagers drive because of the car crash, i think it a heads up for the other teenagers that drive which tells to keep an eye on whats ahead of you. also that teenagers should not have any people to disturb them while driving
Yes, because they will think they would crash and they won't look at the road.
Yes, I believe that it affects other teenagers because, it is that the other teenagers may get addicted when they watch television for example smoking kids follow the teenagers and when they grow up other kids start to follow those teenagers. That is for like a generation. This is what I believe.
Yes, I think that when there's a car accident involving teenagers, it affects the way other teenagers drive.
I dont think that when a teen hears about a car crash, they think that the same will not happen to them.
When there's a news story about a car crash involving teenagers, i think it does not affect the way they drive because most of the teens always think that it would never happen to them and most of the teens do not listen or watch the News.
I think it effects the teen drivers when teens die from a car crash because they would focus on the road better and not do eligle things in the car like buzz driving and driving too fast.Also would lisson better.
I think teenagers should see and listen on what happens to other teenagers in car accidents. Then if they want to drive they do what they wanna do
I think that the teens think that only other people can get hurt in car crashes. They probably don't care that they might be putting their lives and others' at risk.
I think that most teens would listen to the news and learn from it, but there are some who have a fixed mindset and honestly think it will happen to some people, but it will never happen to him. These people are the ones who actually might end in a crash someday.
No, when someone gets in a crash it's because of their immature decision to put themselves in that situation. Now, it makes us appreciate life more, but it in now way makes try to drive safer. Especially, since most of the teenagers who can drive, drive safe anyways.
Another reason why this will continue even with lots of warning is the fact that almost all teens text while driving. this factor and their mindset of " this won't happen to me." doesn't help them.
Yes, it totally effects them because it is kind of scary because people their age die. When they hear it while in a car they are like "What? No way!"
Teenagers their age they take speeding to the max. Teens don't really think about these crashes. They don't think it is a really big deal if they do crash.
I think accidents can happen to anyone if they are acting dumb or not paying attention or even if they wreck into some one else that person can be acting dumb or stupid. I don't think it has anything to do with teens. When i can drive i will be a safe driver.
There is a mixed feeling when teens see these on the news. Part of the time, they think "this won't happen to me," and that feeling of invincibility kicks in, but other times, it really strikes them as "hey, this is reality, this is real" and they get scared and nervous.
Yes because they dont want to be dead like the other six people that did. They want to live their life like there suppose too.
I think that teens have to drive with an adult.19 and higher should drive without one.I think that teens are just excited and say i got this and when they're not paying attention they boom crash.:[
No I don't think it affects the way teens drive, I being teenager myself believe that It's either a tragic mistake or they were under the influence either way I wouldn't change my daily routine because of this story.
Yes because thier friends get hurt so they drive safer!
I think this accident will affect how teens drive. But some teens will still speed and not put on seatbelts. I hate how the seatbelts are annoying but I still have to put it on for safety because you will never know when you're going to get into an accident.
Many teenagers need to realize that car crashes can happen to anybody, and the only way to prevent them is to buckle up and focus on the road ahead
I think that vidioes like that would really help teenagers to be safer drivers
I do not think that other teens driving is affected after other teens crash because most teenagers have the "it will never happen to me" mindset.
I think the kids that here about the story's get scared so they don't want to drink or drive or drive over the speed limit.
sometimes i don't think people care about stuff like that they don't think that one crash could put you in a wheelchair for life one of my friends got put in a wheelchair for getting in a crash when he was a kid
I think that car crashes do make teenagers be more resposoble when they drive.
no, i do not think that the teenagers will slow down because they think things only happen to difftrent people and not them
I think teenagers ignore the accidents.
I think it effects the way they drive.
no, teenagers won't care anymore than little kids do.they think that it won't effect them and that it's a one in a millon chance that anything bad could happen to them behind the wheel.
I don't think it affects the way teen's drive. because teen's are still going to do whatever they want when they are driving.
this story might change to way how teen's think because some of them drive the right way....
I think they ingnore crashes if they don't know the people that died. But if they were close to the people or in the crash they would change their ways.
Yes, I think that teen crashes do affect teenagers but not all because there are many teens who just ignore the accidents because they dont think it would happen to them.
i think that the teens should be able to drive but the have to drive at a speed limit not faster than the speed limit.
i think if my friend was driving like that i would just pull the emergency brack and it will stop the car and then i will just get out of the car when the car has stoped.
I think that the teenagers could have slowed down, only had five people in the car, and put on their seatbelts and if they would have done that maybe nobody would have died.
I think that they shouldn't be driving fast, and there shouldn't be more than 5 people in the car and maybe that one reason that some died.
I dont think that teens should drive cars because every time you trust a teen nothing never go right
maybe they were speeding but peoeple are not thanking about what else chould have happend. maybe an animal was on the road and caught them by suprise or another car was to close to there lane. no one knows
You know what, guys? No one knows the answer. At this point there is no right or wrong answer, so please don't accuse someone of the "wrong" answer.
I don't think seeing people get in a car crash would change there mind on the way they drive. Most people are gonna do what they feel like is right. It doesn't matter what other people say.
In my opinion i think this does affect other teens because some teenagers might see what happened to the Ohio teens and will try to be more careful on the road.
Yes, I think would affect my driving. It would make me think twice before driving too fast. When it talks about the crash I would be very sad and shocking to see.
i think that it should be against the law for teens too drive because its getting too.Dangerous too the point that the teens are dying off and i dont think its far
I think that teenagers should be more careful when driving on the road because the more reckless people drive the more the population drops. Teenagers are'nt the only ones that are driving reckless though, adults should pay more attention to the road. Because adults think that they have learned enough to know what there is to driving safe so they pay less attention.
I think that teenagers should be more careful when driving on the road. I think this because it would probably save a lot of lives as well as money, and cars. Maybe it would be a good idea to give teenagers their dirivers licsenes when they are more mature and actually care about their money and life.
This can happen to any one at anytime, we should all be more careful.
People will always be dumb. This has been happening forever and is still growing. I think it will soon be big and than be ignored again because that's how most teens are.
well i think that teens shouldn't be so reckless when driving especially with others in the car and teens probably have no thoughts of it happening until it does
Unfortunately, I think most teens just ignore stories like this. I personally look at the car crash and think, 'Oh, those poor people,' but I never really think that I may ever be found in the same situation.
Yes it is scary to think that other people are getting killed doing something you do every day.
Those teenagers should have been cautious in the matter. If there is 5 people in the SUV it should be 5 people.
Never gat in to a car who is going to be crazy on the road. I am sorry for the friends and family who lost there folks.
Chose wisley because you are risking your life for a bad thing.
I think that teenagers should always be alert even if they think that it is something that "wouldn't happen to them". I think that it should effect the way you think when you are driving. should i speed and get home quick and possibly die, or should i go the speed limit and stay safe? stay safe, drive the speed limit, not below and not above.
i think when they see this they realize they can hurt the people they care about by driveing dangerously and they realize they are putting there life in danger
I think it affects how teenagers drive, some drive more carefully. Then you have others that just ignore it and end up getting hurt.
i think it affects some teens and some teens think it only happens to others
no because teens will still text so why would they stop driving with know seat belts on
it doesnt really matter to me if people crash. but if it was me i would want people to care beacause im actually a somebody. thats about it.
In my own opinion i don't think that it changes teens minds because they always think that they wont get in an accident.
Sometimes they just don't care or they are not thinking about what could happen until it happens to them. Teens have a different look on the whole thing.
Every day we see car crashes and yet teenagers still drive fast. It has an impact but still wont effect the way teens drive.
I think teenagers listen to the news but forget to be safe.
No, I don't think teeneagers change the way they drive when they hear of a tragic teen car crash. It is not until they get arrested or a ticket for driving careless that they change their ways.
I think that when someone crash's they and their families are shocked. Because its something that could of killed you or someone else. Driving is a huge responsibility so we all have to remember that safety is always the first thing we have to do when getting into a car.
Yes, I think teemagers are affected and change their driving habbits when they hear of a teenage crash.
If I knew the persons in the car maybe. But if I didn't, I might just keep driving the same.
I think teens try to drive more safely but forget that they might be speeding, driving over the lines, or texting.
I think that it depends on the teenager, some people feel bad and get extremely afraid and paranoid to drive, but others just ignore it thinking that it wouldn't happen to them. I think all teenagers should care about these accidents because they could learn a few things about speeding and what it could lead to.
I think that all the other teen drivers out there should be more aware of how they are driving. Most of them are probably just ignoring the crash, but I don't think that's right. They should be careful! Then again not all teens think that will happen to them.

It depends on the teen...Some teens may think their not going to get in a crash
I think teenagers just ignore the car crashes because they think it will only happen to other people and not them. Teens think that there are a lot of people in the world and it will not happen to them.q
I honk teens are effected by the cause of a wreck. I have a newly driving sister, and she almost got in a car crash. Two days before she saw a wreck on the tv. I think it's because the don't think about what caused the wreck before
It depends on the teen...Some teens may think they won't get in a crash, So it doesn't bother a lot of them. Not all teens think it won't happen to them. Some are actual safe drivers others are reckless!
It woudnt mader who you are any one can get in an accident. My cousin got in to an accident and thought he wasn't going to get heart but he thought that accidents only happen to others.
I think that the teen drivers should be more aware of how they drive. Most teens are probably ignoring the fact that anything could happen to them, including a crash like that one. Some teens are to careless, but I don't think that's right. They should be more careful!
I think teens are effected by the cause of a wreck. I have a newly driving sister, and she almost got in a car crash. Two days before she saw a wreck on the tv. I think it's because the don't think about what caused the wreck before
teenagers should have stricter drivimg rules than adult!!!
i think teens think its just happen to others. they look at it like its just another car crash.
For me, it will affect the way I will drive in the future, but for other teens I think they ignore it because they think it will never happen to them, or to anyone they know.
I wish it did. Unfortunately, teenagers will continue to drive wrecklessly despite reports of tragic accidents. Typically, people learn from their own mistakes, not the mistakes of others....
I think it doesn't because even though we hear about we don't stop doing it.
While there are a lot of teen involved car accidents everywhere. It really depends where they live. Needless to say, yes teens are more likely to crash than someone who has been driving for a much longer time, but people learn through experience. It's those scary moments that make us better drivers.
I know that I take caution when I hear about crashes because I know it could happen to ANYBODY! Be responsible and safe when driving!
A lot of teens are to head strong, so I do think that they will ignore this type of stuff.
Teens might just think that they can drive but sometimes they can't but do it anyway instead.
I think it should because everybody should be aware of their surroundings without being distracted by friends, and it makes them think twice about their actions.
When I'm driving something I find myself blasting music too loud or thinking about other things. Usually within seconds of doing this my mind thinks of a 16 year old girl from my school who died texting while driving last year. Because of her, I will never text and drive. I think everyone should listen to these kind of stories because nobody ever thinks it will happen to them, but it has to happen to somebody.
My cousin, age 20, recently got into a car crash that took her life becasue she wasnt wearing a seat belt. I used to think that car crashes would never happen to me or anyone I loved, but they do. Now, I always drive safer and so do my parents. I also always remind people to wear seatbelts, it could save your life.
It will effect their driving because if they see what has been happening to other people in the world they will know that "hey that is not a good idea" and chances are they will take the accident as a precaution to be carefuller when driving.
But on the other hand if they think that the person that did that was just an accident then it will have no effect on them once so ever.
I think that when a teenager hears about a car crash story where there is a death or a bad injury that they think that it doesn't apply to them because they think that they are more carefull then others. The truth is you never know when a problem can occur and you should always be sure to follow the laws.
Teens choose to ignore it because thinking driving fast cars will make them look cool.
I think teens think it only happens to other people, because they dont think it will happen them.
No, Because most teens are happy with the way that they drive today and don't think of the consequences of speeding or not wearing a seat belt.
I think that when car crashes happen to teenagers some get affected by it and do the the best they can to drive better, while others think it's the luck of the draw.
I think teenagers see this sort of thing and think, 'Wow, this could have been me', but I don't think it registers in most teens that it really could actually happen to them if they aren't careful.
It really is one of those things that teenagers think only happens to others because many say "i am such a good driver" and they forget about that it can happen to anybody. it is just like a teenager wearing a seatbelt in the car not many teens do even though you are supposed to.
Teenagers are new drivers, so they feel as if they are invicible. In reality, they should take into consideration the dangers new drivers (such as themselves) pose as a risk to themselves while also other drivers when fatal accidents occur and be more cautious than the average driver.
Teenagers, when they see that stuff on TV they think thats never going to happen to them so they just mostly go on
Mostly, teens ignore such things like this, but I hope they would learn their lesson by realizing how dangerous and foolish they are.
I think that until you are in a crash you think that they only happen to other people, because it seems impossible that they could happen. You think you are safe, the same thing as every other thing that you are told is dangerous. Can you honestly tell me you haven't had a time when you were told that it was dangerous, and you thought "no its not!", can you?
Well... I'm not old enough to drive, but I think that it veries by person. When I am old enough to drive, however, I will NOT do it recklessly!
I think it does help us realize that we need to me a bit more careful when we drive. I just wish that just the thought of dieing in a car crash would open eyes to driving a lot more carefully.
It depends on the person. Everyone knows that you are supposed keep your eyes on the road, but some people choose to not to follow those laws.
I think it definetely affects the way teens drive. It makes them think that crashing their car can happen to them and they could easily be killed in a car accident just for not wearing their seat belt. People don't always remind us to wear our seat belt for a reason. It can save your life.
This report on the car accident with the teenagers stood out to me. About a month ago I experienced a car accident of my own and has left me with paranoia in any vehicle now. I feel car accidents do certainly affect a teenager's view on driving, it sure did for me. ( I am 13). I used to think that a car accident wasn't something that would happen to me, I just thought they happened to others. Now for sure I'm rethinking when I'm going to begin driving and how. I hope others take precaution and realize how serious it actually is.
It does surprise me that something like that could happen, but I always have been, and always will drive safely. Making sure to wear my seat belt.
After losing a student in October and another in December both due to car accidents, I think once it happens to someone in a community or in a school it is more eye opening & affects the way we drive more than just hearing about it.
I think it does affect them but half the time when there is a car accident it has to do with drinking or driving to fast.
I think most or some teens will think about a situation like this, take it into consideration and then completely forget about it. It's just that 'thing' teens have. It's a part of life.
Young people don't really have a sense of mortality. Until something actually happens to them, they won't really think of the possibility that it could happen to them. They think they'll live forever, when the reality is they won't.
I don't really think that certain Teenagers seeing stories like those affect them because they think think that it wont happen to them. But there are some that might see the story and think "Wow. What if that happens to me?" and be a lot more careful and responsible. (:
No matter how tragic a car accident involing teens is other teens feel that it can only happen to others and not themselfs
I think this affects the way other teenagers drive because maybe now, they will learn how to watch out!
I think that teens will be affected when they see a story like this. They will probably start paying more attention to there surroundings when there driving in order to prevent more wrecks.
I think that some teenagers will be a little more careful at driving once they see a crash. They will be cautious at first, but then slip into their old driving habits. Not all teenagers will ignore the crash and not take in account that their driving may be bad; Some teenagers will realize that their driving habits should be changed. So, in the end, I think that it depends what teenager you are talking about. Everyone is different!
It should affect the way teenagers drive if they don't want to die. If they don't listen, then they are going to learn it the hard way.
I think that when there's a news story about a car crash involving teens, other teens really listen and maybe can even relate to it. its very eye opening for them, and I do believe that, at least for a little while, with the story in their head, they are more cautious than they would usually be on the roads.
In today's society, many teens have access to cars or other forms of transportation. Unfortunately, the privilege to drive is often taken advantage of, with harrowing effects. Even though they're advised by their parents and other adults thousands of times, these teenagers think they are invulnerable to the consequences others face. No matter how many times they're told, they won't take the advise seriously until they're in that position. Frequently, parents tell their children, "Don't text and drive." However, studies have proven that most adolescents text while on the road anyways. Sadly, the valuable advise given to youngsters by parents is usually disregarded. Making daft decisions, many teens put their life and others' in peril.
No because they just think it's an accident and nothing will happen when there are in a car they think there safe and all.
I think that teenagers don't take car crashes very seriously when they first hear about them. Sure, at first it might worry them but eventually they just think "It can't happen to me" or "I'm a safe driver" and forget, even though car crashes happen to all kinds of people, regardless of how good of a driver they are.
Yes it would change my driving habits. Call yo mamma and your dad to tell them no matter wat happens to you I'll still be in your heart no matter wat. Is careless/drunk driving worth your beating heart?
DRIVE SAFELY MY HOMEIES
I think that it does effect how other teens drive. Especially teens who live around a place where the crash happened. Teens should not ignore crashes thinking that it only happens to other people. It happens to everyone.
I think it does not because they think it is a result of a bad driver.Also, they don't reflect it on their driving because they try not to crash or get in a accident while driving without a license.
In a car crash involving teenagers, a vast amount of other adolescents would most likely ignore it. Not to make any generalizations, but some teens are completely oblivious to the events around them. Furthermore, most ratiocinate that it won't happen to them because it rarely does. While in reality, there is a much larger possibility of it happening to them than they might think. However, some cogent teenagers do take note of these horrific events such as the car crash and learn to be much more cautious than they were. On the other hand, there is still only a small amount of them. Hopefully, in the future more teens will be smart and prioritize safety.
Until death actually happens to someone close to them, teens and most people don't really realize it's impact. I think that most teens ignore it, thinking that they are invincible and that they won't die in a car accident. Truly, though, they're just denying the facts.
all teens are aware of what will happen if they're reckless. they just might not choose to notice other deaths.
Most people aren't aware of death's impact until it actually happens to someone close to them. I think that teens just ignore these deaths, thinking that they are invincible. They might even think that they won't ever die in a car accident.
I think it doesn't affect the way teens drive. I say this because some teens don't care about other people's mistakes. Some teens do not let other people's failings be a lesson of what not to do.
I think stories about car crashes will catch the teen's attention and is heavy on the heart for a few minutes, but then goes right out the other ear almost immediately.
I wish they did. unfortunately they dont, when a new story is on the news, most teens think it will never happen to them. they learn mostly by their mistakes not others
I think teenagers are becoming more and more stubborn. They rebelling a whole lot more than they used to. Why? Only they know. I hope they also know that it can lead to death.
No, they think they're the best drivers in the world. They only think car accidents would not happen to them.
I think that when other teenagers hear about car crashes, they come to their senses and think that there is a possibility it can happen to them. This causes them to want to be extra careful while driving.
In every circumstances you never know how you are going to end up the next moment. Teenage driving is influenced by peers driving and lack of understanding of how danderous driving can be. Plus, teenagers have a high tendency of just doing whatever they can no matter what their parents say.
I do think the law should change the limit of drivers to 21, like alcohol. As said, car crashes are the leading cause of deaths like us. It does affect driving if under the influence, and many teens ignore the fact that they may have a car crash anytime.
When car crashes occur that involve teenagers, most other teenagers are effected. Accidents occur to teens an exorbitant amount. Most times however, the message gets across only if the victims share some type of relationship with others. For instance, once my fathers boss's daughter was in a car accident. Before the crash, he was pro driving and couldn't wait to send me out there. Now hes more careful and diligent about the situation. The accident really opened up his senses compared to other hundreds of crashes that occur every day. Clearly, car crashes not only effect teenagers, they effect everyone.
I drive and I drive quite a bit. I'm always on alert and I'm always hyper aware of what's going on around me. I know we aren't indestructible and that we can easily get hurt or killed in a car crash or even just walking. I know it changes how I drive, it makes me a little more scared to drive. it reminds me we have this privilege to drive and it's not our right as humans.
I think it's odd that teens don't reflect off of car accidents but I think they should so that they know to pay attention the next time that they drive
I have a drivers permit, and I am now very cautious dew to the past incidence of teen accidents. I believe that most teens will take advantage of the privilege and not realize the consequent.
If i had my liscense it would certainly effect me and make me drive more carefully.
I think it defiently affects the ay teens drive. I think it makes them more aware and cautious while trying. These crashes she also make teens more vunderable to follow the rules and regulations of the road.
i think most people ignore the fact that a teen got and think it will not happen to be because im going to be smart and not let it happen you will never know if it happen i think you should listen to the crash
Unfortunately, teenagers don't believe these crazy crashes actually happen. Just like anybody else would think, they think they would have enough alacrity to save themselves. On CNN, Carl rendered about a packed car crashing into the river. Obviously, nobody wants to be separated from their friends even for a car ride, but one should always put their own, and every one's around them safety first. Hopefully, there will always be a cogent child in the car that remind the driver of the precautionary they should take. Eventually, teenagers will realize these daunting disasters can happen to anyone.
If a teenager cared he would drive more safely. Unfortunately not many care and the majority end up like the ones in Ohio.
I think car crashes involving teens affects the way they drive because it makes them realize how much more careful they have to be when they are driving. Teenagers especially have to be very cautious when they are driving because they are beginners, and they can get distracted easily. I think teens get nervous when they hear about accidents involving other teens, so they want to be more focused on car safety and just overall more driven to drive safely.
i think teenagers do not learn from others mistakes. but they learn from there own
Yes – when my cousin Zach was 18 he got in a car wreck and after that it took him 1 year to man up and he 's been driving safely but when its icy on the roads I have to tell him to stop drifting
It's not surprising that teenagers will get crazy not realizing that they will put their lives on the line for a little joyride. I'm going to be driving next month I've scared of thing like this. So, I've known to buckle up and understand the driving laws are needed to be taken seriously.
Honestly I think that teens dont pay any attenion to what happens and how serious car recks are.
They ignore and do the same thing,but there are probably some teens that DO pay attenion on the road.
Well Ithink this is will never be the same for the family and friends for the teens that died. My wishes also go out to the families.
I think this affects some teenagers that the news, but leaves teenagers that do not watch news the same.
After ratiocinating a good while, I think that teens do take into consideration of what has happened to others. Clearly, car crashes are the leading cause of death in America for teens. Recently, there was also another car crash. This harrowing accident took place early in the morning as the driver of a bakery truck slammed into a column on the highway, hanging him over one side of the road. Teens should at least take into consideration that the man driving did not deserve to crash and have several injuries. Nobody deserves that. Some adolescents think that only happens to other people but accidents and mistakes are always taking place. People should drive with a little more caution on the road even if they think they are Danica Patrick.
I don't think this story will affect how teens drive because they will just think oh, well, whatever that won't happen to me. They will not believe that texting while driving IS DANGEROUS until they experience it.
I think that it doesn't affect the way teens drive because there is always stories about kids getting in crashes and if it mattered they would be care. When i get dropped off at school there is always a crash with a high school student.
I don´t think teenagers should drive especially on the open road
Not at all. Teens might take notice of it for a while, but they will quickly ignore it. I think the teens will always think that those accidents only happened when teens aren't careful, but if they are careful, nothing bad can happen to them.
Well, most teens would think that what happened is just something that regularly happens to all people and just go on the way they were driving.
I think that it does actually effect how teens drive when someone dies or is paralized for there life ,thats when they just start driveing normaly for the month then there back to speeding again.
It should but teens would always think they are driving safe if they dont get a ticket or get pulled over.
Yes and no. Every teenager is different. But generally speaking, it probably doesn't affect the way teenagers drive when they see a story about car accidents including teenagers. Many teenagers don't like to listen to the rules, so they rebel against them, hence causing the problem. However, these stories impact many teenagers as well. It raises their awareness of this problem going on, and helps them make the right decisions when they're driving.
I think teenagers think just because it happened to someone else they think they wont
Obviously, car crashes aren't uncommon and teens are well-aware of the dangers. It is one of the top causes for death in the Unites States, after all. Despite this, people will be recalcitrant to the advise of others and remain ignorant, as per nature. However, it seems the closer the incident is to a teens neighborhood, the more cautious they become about their driving. Basically, the closer it is to home, the more likely teens are to ratiocinate on their reprehensible driving skills, if that's the case. On a larger scale, it really comes down to the right timing, and the environment the adolescent live in, so there's clearly a lot of factors playing into it. Overall, it differentiates between people, but if the media began covering car crashes constantly, that'd probably motivate those who suppose it "just happens to other people" to actually seriously consider their actions.
I think that teens think about the stuff that they are doing or what has happend to outher kids but they havnt learned because people learn from there mistake not outhers. I think that they should change the driving age for teens.
I think car crash involving teenager does not affect the way other teens drive. Because if it did then teens would try to prevent it from happening by not making the same mistake other teens did.
It is certain that car accidents affect other teenagers. All the accidents can happen to ANYONE. And all the accidents don't let people notice they will come. Accident comes accidently not on purpose. It can happen to anyone or anywhere even to me.
I think it does affect because teenagers DO know that the victims who die of car crashes could be them. I know this since I am one of em.
If it was just one story on the news, I might not give it much thought, but because I've seen many stories about car crashes, I am always conscious of the dangers of driving recklessly.
If I were driving this wouldn't effect me. 1. you don't drive with an overloaded car
2. you don't assume that you are the king of the world
3. you buy a ford f150 raptor
I hope teens realize that car accidents can happen to anyone.
well yes because to think about drinking and drivingit is a nigt mare i lost a friend in a car crash i don't want tat to be me,
Grace will always be missed
Im 16 and im a teen driver and I do have to say sometimes I do feel invincible but when I do hear stories like this I think to myself, what if that was me? How would my family and friends react? So I do drive safer.
I do think it affects the way other teenagers drive. When they get into their vehicle, they should think to themselves, it can happen to anyone. Because it does happen to anyone, so they will drive safer.
I think that they think that it would only happen to another person. They don't understand that it could happen to anybody and they think it might just happens to another person. But if it happens to someone they know, they would probably do it. Its reversing
I believe it does not affect how teenagers drive because if it did it would no longer be the leading way that teenagers die.
I think it should effect teenage drivers because it could kill them in a crash.
i think it make teen have more caution just last year a teenager died in a car wreck and there has been less car wrecks the involve teenagers in my town!
People ignore what happens and why it happens. We had 2 or 3 accidents involving drunk teens. People don't listen
I think it was sad but we should of had more police around so that will not happen
No it doesnt they still drive just like every body else does. They`ll only drive better if that happens to them.
I think the car crash affects the way teenagers feel when they drive , it puts a big impact on their lives and life.
I think it was very sad because those students died. It was very wrong for them to do it but I hope teenagers across the U.S.A learned a valuable lesson.
I think it is sad that 2 out of 8 people made it but i am happy two because they made it i feel sad for every body brother or sister or any body that was in it. If they was related to you i'm so sorry and sad for your lost.
I think people should stay safe and put a seat belt on because that is the safest way to be safe in a car i think that if its 5 seats than 5 people get in if its 5 than that mean it is made only for 5 people to get in i feel bad for the 6 that die and the 2 that lived because they witnessed something horrible an they will never forget or regret that i hope they do not have nothing dangerous and i hope there not injured.
i think they will be more cautious driving bvecause they know what can happen when they crash!!!
i think teens will think that a car crash would never happen to them so they wouldnt pay much attention
i think most teenagers who see that will watch there driving and speed on the road
ignore because they happen every day its sad but god has a plan for everyone
No this is different because some teenagers drink and they have crashes.And sometimes they don't pay attention to what they are doing and they crash.
Knowing teenagers they will probably ignore it. They think that this can't happen to them or won't.
that was sad
the media can affect the way people think, but I truly believe that the media shouldn't report stories like that.
i really believe that teenagers think that stuff like that will never happen to them. but really you never know. better safe than sorry.
I'm not old enough to drive yet, but these incidents remind me that driving can be very dangerous.
We think it does change driving habits and increase drivers attention but don't think it changes them for good. All too soon drivers resort back to the unsafe practices they are used to.
Yes i do think it effects the driving habits of teenagers, they learn to make more responsible choices. To help secure themselves, there loved ones and there friends.
Most of the time, teenagers will see this kind of things in the news and think to themselves: "Oh, that will never happen to me. It only happens to other people." The problem with this is that they fail to realize that accidents involving vehicles can happen to anyone, no matter how careful of a driver you think you are.
i don't think they think too much of it, but they probably keep it in mind while driving. it also depends on whether or not the teenagers in the crash are responsible for it.
It is a very individual problem. After hearing about this, I was very VERY sad. So were everybody else in my room. But after about 5 minutes, we had all forgotten about it. I believe that most of us teens do think about choices we make momentarily, but are a little naïve about it and think, "Well that's bad for them, but nothing like that can ever happen to me."
I think that it makes us want to drive safer than normal to even know that some of our peers are dying because they are being silly on the road
well some teens don't really care but an incident like this happened just two day ago in my hometown
i think that teens should think before they do something crashes can happen to anyone
I cannot drive yet, but my three siblings can and now, hearing these news stories, I am a little scared when they go out driving. They all are responsible, but their friends....?
Teens pay attention to these accidents for a while, but after a week or so they forget and go back to their old habits. I think that they should remember that just because it's been a while since the one they heard about happened, it doesn't mean that it can't happen again.... and this time it could be to you.
Most teens are not affected by stories of accidents they see in the news because they think it won't happen to them. I was the same way until I was the victim of a hit-and-run crash about a month ago. The person who hit me ran his red light and he was going about 30 miles over the speed limit. I did nothing wrong. It doesn't matter how good you are at driving; as long as there are reckless people out there, it is very dangerous. Since my accident I have tried to be a much safer driver, because I now know the reality of how quickly and easily these accidents happen, and I never want to be the cause of one.
Clearly, before considering daft decisions, these young adolescents should remember the daunting dangers of reality. Sneaking off to a party or somewhat isn't safe if their parents aren't knowledgeable about it. In society these days, teenagers don't realize that there are feral drivers who don't know the age of sex of the opposing driver behind the wheel. Although some teens stay safe, careless juveniles deteriorate from abominable decisions. Unfortunately, they forget the dangers and brush it off as if just happens to anyone. Many more growing children learn how to drive and could have the possibility of becoming injured or die. With the precaution from their adult supervision, teens concoct a diminishing possibility of creating danger.
This is one of those thing that you alwas think will happen to someone else, and can't happen to you. the trouble is, we are all someone else to everyone else.
In today's world, several teens have been allowed to operate automobiles for transportation. Unfortunately, the privilege to drive is often taken advantage of and causes daunting effects. Although they are most likely advised by their parents and the news, some teenagers seem to believe they will never face the consequences others face and what they see on the news won't happen to them. No matter how many times they're told, they won't take the information seriously until they're in that position. Often, parents acknowledge their children to not "text and drive." Many studies, however, prove that most teens text while on the road. When teens here about car crashes on the news, they probably won't think to much about and will do what the normally do when driving. Sadly, the necessary advice given to the independent teens by parents is usually disregarded. By taking foolish, daft choices, many teens put lives, including their own, at a huge risk.
Clearly, before considering daft decisions, these young adolescents should remember the daunting dangers of reality. Sneaking off to a party or somewhat isn't safe if their parents aren't knowledgeable about it. In society these days, teenagers don't realize that there are feral drivers who don't know the age of sex of the opposing driver behind the wheel. Although some teens stay safe, careless juveniles deteriorate from abominable decisions. For example, in the movie, Toxic Driving, there is an abundant amount of premature adults who recently were drinking. They came up with a stupid idea to try and kill whatever they see on the road. Definitely under the influence, they murder innocent people causing danger. Unfortunately, they teenagers forget the dangers and brush it off as if just happens to anyone. Many more growing children learn how to drive and could have the possibility of becoming injured or die. With the precaution from their adult supervision, teens concoct a diminishing possibility of creating danger.
In many cases, people don't understand that this can happen to anyone. Truthfully, the most important part of driving is being aware of one's surroundings no matter what. Deftly, they must watch the drivers around them, no matter how spectacular someone is at driving. Understanding that there are many people that drive today very aggressively is key, their surroundings are the most important part of keeping someone safe, and a family jubilant. Not many teenagers unnderstand that something like this can happen to anyone who doesn't pay attention to the road and gets distracted. It is a serious issue in the United States that must be resolved.
Clearly, some teens will ratiocinate about driving safely when they hear about daunting car crashes on the news. Obviously, there will be other teenagers who won't care and will render that it will never be them. Visibly, a vast amount of teenagers will drive with precautions within the first week or so of hearing the news. With no doubt, most of them will forget it within a couple of weeks and commence to drive recklessly again! So it all depends on one's decision it could be cogent or retarded. In the end, it all depends on this teen's overall attitude.
In today’s society, many daft, underage adolescents are either involved in a car crash or getting an exorbitant amount of tickets. Unfortunately, car crashes can resolve in death or major injuries. On March 11th, eight teenagers were found dead because there was an excess of individuals in the vehicle that only holds five. Basically, the driver lost control and ended up ruining the lives of others. Hopefully, this opens the eyes to many children and teenagers. After reading a lot of information on the news about adolescents driving horribly, one could think that kids listen to the facts. However, most likely it doesn't raise awareness because most children believe it will never happen to them. Obviously, they are oblivious to the rate of teenage drivers that are killed. Thus, car collisions are a dreading idea to think about, that should result in more realization to the disasters occurring.
When there is a car crash involving teenagers, teens who are driving just believe it only happens to others. The teens deny the fact that it may happen to them in the future. For example, after this horrific harrowing crash, Teens will believe it will not happen to them because they believe they are really good drivers Obviously, a car crash is capable of razing ones life in a short time. The teens believe they know how to drive and exclaim about their driving skills, however, on the road anything may occur. On the road, its ones destiny on how they will survive, its not based on their driving skills. Patently, Teens have no effect when a accident occur and teens are involved.
In today’s society, an exorbitant amount of car crashes occur due to the careless driving and bad habits of teenagers. Amazingly, one can get a driving permit or learning license at the young age of fifteen! For instance, on “CNN Student News,” Carl Azuz, the anchor, rendered about a daunting car crash that took place on Tuesday, March 12, 2013. In this scenario, a SUV carrying eight teenagers flipped over into a pond. Six of the young adults died and two were injured. Honestly, this should reflect on other teenagers and their driving habits, but unfortunately, as the saying goes, “the news will go through one year and come out the other.” In simpler words, after hearing the dangerous effects of carefree driving, teens will soon forget about the disastrous consequences. Clearly, car crashes cause many deaths among middle-aged young adults and teenagers would probably not be greatly affected by it.
Most teenagers probably disregard the statistics concerning car crashes. Coincidentally, teenage car crash survivors always end up saying, "I never thought this could happen to me." One of the huge problems with teen driving, is that almost no one looks around and realizes the patent risk they have of getting in a car crash. People also don't look at why there is such a voluminous record of crashes involving teens. Sometimes, the other passengers in the car may pose as a huge distraction to the driver, so people should be wary of that.
Honestly, I think that when teens witness these types of things happen. Mostly, they think this cant happen to them cause there just so young that they don't think just act. I could compare this to me or just look back on something I have done for example when I was attending a field trip I threw stuff on the bus and received a detention for the defiant thing I did. Looking back on, that now I have learned my lesson. For my actions could have caused a crash which could have gotten people hurt or even worst died. Sadly, when your driving on the road sometime you don't get a second chance. But I knew the feeling I was thinking of just having fun but those problems have elucidated away.
When there is a news story about car crashes involving teenagers, other adolescents probably ratiocinate they should be more cautious. They feel that accidents do happen and they can happen to anyone. For instance, Fred Abelove rendered that he would drive more cautiously if he heard about a car crash involving teens. Because he doesn't want it happening to him, he would be careful on the road to avoid crashes. Fred is 17 years old and a good driver. Although he knows he is a great driver, he would still take more cautions while driving especially if other people are in the vehicle. Patently, teenagers would drive more carefully if an incident occurred involving people their age.
After seeing daunting headlines of car crashes, some teenagers still might not be affected. Millions of car accidents occur every year. On a recent "CNN Student News" broadcast, a group of teens were in a car that was flipped over, killing six of them. The two that survived this were terrified, despondent, and shocked. Nevertheless, several youngsters continue to be reckless and careless about driving safety. Unfortunately, many peers have the mentality that an awful event like this could never happen to them. Sadly, it is unlikely that many teens willl be affected by news of car crashes.
Throughout this society, car accidents happen on a daily basis, this affects the way teenagers drive. These teens learn what not to do when driving, and learn valuable driving tips. For example, in Delaware, Justin Long, victim, swerved off the road after getting distracted ,and taking his eyes off the road to respond to a text. This story served as a paragon example growing teens, do not get distracted while driving. Young adults will now know that next time they get distracted while driving, it could lead to daunting consequences. Similarly, Marvin Hernandez, high school senior, also commented, rendering, "Seeing all these accidents due to dumb distraction really motivates me to not make the same mistakes." Meaning, teens are learning from other peoples terrible driving accidents, and mistakes, and using them to their advantage. Clearly, common car accidents really affects the way teens drive.
I believe it does affect us.It just shows how irresponsible some of us are and makes us think twice about who we let behind the wheel of a car were in.
We heard these stories and they do affect teens but after a while teens will forget and still believe it can't happen to them
Throughout the United States, teens are killed in senseless accidents. Unfortunately, the most daunting accidents are shown on the news. Personally, these types of accidents vastly effect how I would drive a car. Luckily, there are some cogent teens that are also affected by these horrific accidents. Ultimately, there are still a lot of people that are not affected and only think it will happen to others. With this mentality, they continue to act wild and remain careless behind the wheel. Clearly, the majority of teens disregard these accidents and feel that it will never happen to them.
Most teenagers do not peruse any of the cars while driving on the road. Exorbitant amount of teens die every year do to car crashes. Many of these crashes are due to not looking at the road or drunk driving. Usually, the people driving are driving really bad or just got their license. Also, the people could be trying to impress their friends on how "good" they can drive. Clearly, the teenager's driving is the cause of many crashes in the United States.
In today's society, accidents occur from the way teenagers drive for many reasons. Knowing that people are technologically advanced, effects follow it. For example, texting is a major issue involving teens. There are a vast amount of kids driving unaware of the consequences from any sort of distraction. Basically, the increasing of accidents do happen from teens either driving a high speed or no paying attention. It is extremely imperative for kids behind the wheel to be cautious. Patently, teenagers lead a big aftermath regarding the road.
I think that some teens near that place would drive safer for a little while, but not for long, and people across the country most likely would never give it a second thought, which is really sad.
Some teenagers might be more careful, but the majority of them think that they are more responsible and that it won't ever happen to them when the try something like that. I think that teens should think before they do something crashes can happen to anyone.
Sadly, an exorbitant amount of individuals die everyday on effects of car crashes. Obviously, a vast part of these individuals are teens. Even though these youngsters see a plethora of individuals dieing everyday, it still doesnt make them self conscious of what there doing when they drive. Patently, this generation is very ignorant, they dont believe anything will happen to them. As rendered by many teens, "Whats the chance thats gunna happen!" In other words, they believe there is no chance of such a horrible situation occurring in there life. Although, it can occur at any time, at any place.
In society, car accident is a vast problem especially when it comes to teenagers. Personally, teenagers don't like to listening sometimes. Due to this, many daunting accidents occurs. For example, teenagers wont think about what goes on, on the roads instead all there thinking about when they turn 16 is getting a driver's license. They usually ignore accidents happen when driving. Sadly, this is a big issue that need to be fixed. Clearly, the accidents needs to be prevented even though they don;t realize whats happening around them.
Influencing their decisions emphasizes that teenagers contemplate about devastating car crashes among their age group. When a tragic event occurs, people often think about the same scenario happening to them. For example, after the recent accident in Warren, Ohio, several adolescents thought about themselves in a despairing, despondent driving circumstance. Vast amounts of individuals all over the nation analyzed that situations similar to that can occur to anyone at any time. Despite the strong sense of reality gained, a few unaware people argue that children are foolish enough to dismiss the possibility of collisions taking place in their lifetime. However, those civilians fail to realize that the risk will always be on our mind. Evidently, the latest misfortune will positively affect the way teenagers drive.
After experience a tragic accident with a love one open teens eyes to drives safer . This accident encourage us to be safer on the road and to be caution of our surroundings
Around the world, many teenagers in today's society have access to a voluminous amount of cars. Unfortunately, many teenagers take advantage of this privilege in a bad way and forget to have safety first. Although majority of the teens watch harrowing stories of devastating car crashes, these young adults think that something h like a that will never happen to them. Even though they are told to drive safely a vast amount of times, they don't take the advice seriously until they are in that position. Oftentimes, parents tell their kids, "DO NOT text and drive!" However, studies have shown that most juvenile text while on the road anyways. Sadly, the valuable advise given to youngsters by parents are usually ignored. Car crashes to teenagers is the sort of thing they ignore, thinking that accidents only happen to other people.
In today's society, most kids don't ratiocinate what is being told to them. Most of the time, the teens would just ignore it. For example, in Miramar, there was a daunting car accident involving two teenagers. The crash happened after a party at 2 in the morning. In their high school, the teachers make the teens aware of these events and try to make them prevent them from happening. However, it doesn't matter what anyone tries to teach a teenager, they'll probably just ignore it.
some teenagers may think they drive well, they feel more excited when driving at a so young age.
Recently, a group of teenagers decided to be recalcitrant to safety laws and have eight people put in a car that sits four. Sadly, these kids died when they hit the side of a road and flipped over into a pond. Only two lived. In "CNN Student News", viewers were exposed to this tragic story. With being close to ages of teenage drivers,they rationcated that maybe that could hapen to them later on. No one is always safe. With a simple action such as wearing seatbelts, maybe those teenagers could have been saved. This could've been easily prevented. After watching this, students felt l they sould be more aware. Clearly, this harrowing event has left an impact on teenagers.
Throughout the world, a vast number of segments about teen car crashes are shown on television. In the past, teens are known to be reckless drivers. For instance, when other teens hear about the harrowing situations others get themselves in, they slowly begin to caution themselves more in their vehicles. Additionally, they know that anyone who decides to travel by car puts themselves in the feral risk of getting severely injured or dying. Boldly, there's no reason why a teenager can't gain more awareness just by witnessing the fatal events of others. Without a doubt, car accidents involving teenagers result in other teens driving more carefully.
I think that it will bring awareness to teens. Some will obviously disagree and think that it only happens to certain people. I can't drive yet but if I could I would be aware when driving to prevent getting hurt or hurting someone else.
It is a very individual problem. After hearing about this, I was very VERY sad. So were everybody else in my room. But after about 5 minutes, we had all forgotten about it. I believe that most of us teens do think about choices we make momentarily, but are a little naïve about it and think, "Well that's bad for them, but nothing like that can ever happen to me."
I think that although people (teens) may listen to all these crashes and some are actually scared into being safer, most forget or ignore it after a period of time. most of the time, for people to listen it has to be related to them. like a family memeber dying in a car crash, that scares people, and when people are scared they try to aviod what scares them.
i would take my pictures
I would bring my bulls SnapBack.
I would bring my Grandpa's ashes.
I would bring my grandpa's necklace.
I think if i could bring one thing i would bring my Memory Book that has pictures of all of my family members..
I would bring my best friend so that I would have somebody to talk to!
i think it does effect the way teenagers drive, it shows them what could happen when they drive like that. it will hopefully show them that that it is not ok to drive like that.
I am really glad that CNN Student News brought that up, because now, my uncle (s) can be more careful while driving!
I think some will start to be more careful after they hear about car crashes because I know I will be. But some might listen to it then forget about it then while there driving they might remember they need to be more careful or they will just forget altogether
I think it will affect teens, cause lots of people die young because they are carless about how they drive, and people with a nice life don't want to die at 15,16 or ANY age, so the people who do die inspire the not dead teens to drive careful, or else they might lose their precious life
I think that most teens ignore the grim reality that car crashes can happen to anyone but if you follow the rules that are set in place and you take precautions, they can be avoided or prevented from occurring so often.
i hate the thought of my brother traveling in a car in the middle of winter all of my siblings have crashed before one died i don't want it to happen again
Always remind my sister to drive carefully .
I think that teens like me aren't making the right decision about driving. They probably text while driving illegally. The probably also drink alcohol; most likely since they can't drink alcohol since they are under 21.
I honestly hope most teenagers would drive safer but sometimes that's not the case. Some teens think oh it happens but you don't no what you have until you lose it. So next time think before you do something because you may regret it.
I think that when car accidents happen other teeagers think a little more than usual, but when they go in their car and make reckless decisions like texting they are not thinking anyways. It's sad that it takes someone dear to them to get in an accident,to acually start taking precautions to be a safe driver.
I think it's just something they ignore because it is not them or their family in that trouble. Another reason why they ignore it ,is because are just reckless some of those teen driver and well stupid stuff and get into trouble or crashes like. That is all have for this opinon share out.
