Road Safety - High performance vehicles

Author

High performance vehicles need to be handled by experienced, sensible drivers. While a fast bike might seem a great gift for your child, inexperienced drivers can find it challenging to handle the power and speed of such vehicles, increasing the likelihood of accidents. While no parent would actually choose this, don't inadvertently become the reason your child has lost life or limb. It is advisable for young drivers to start with a modest and manageable vehicle to gain experience and develop safe driving habits.

Young people can respond to peer pressure because of their need for social recognition, and studies show that this can significantly increase the risks they are willing to take. Parents, until convinced that your child is a safe driver, accompany him on as many journeys as possible.
