The Driving Privilege

When you are issued a drivers license, you are also issued a great deal of responsibility. You have to drive safely, obey traffic laws, and respect the rights of other drivers, pedestrians and cyclists. Your responsibilities as a driver also include properly parking your vehicle and its regular maintenance.

Also, owning or driving a vehicle has some financial responsibilities: drivers need to have auto insurance that covers any potential damages or injuries they can cause.

Driving requires a good attitude: stress, fatigue, or distractions may engage you in unsafe driving and cause mistakes to be made.

Good attitude and behavior will always make your journey much safer and more pleasant!

Remember that there is no such thing as your right to drive; driving is a privilege, granted by the state. When you get your drivers license you're trusted to adhere to a specific set of traffic rules and drive safely to minimize the risk to everyone on the road. And due to their lack of experience, teenage drivers should be especially careful on the road: according to NHTSA, teenage drivers are the most dangerous road users.
