Groundbreaking (and eye-opening) study of teen drivers released by AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety
The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety recently concluded a three-part study on the main causes of distracted driving for novice teenage drivers. This study collected in-vehicle video clips from 50 volunteer families in North Carolina.
The first part of the study looked at how parents supervise their teens during the learner's stage of Graduated Driver Licensing.
The second part examined teen driving behaviors when they transitioned to unsupervised driving.
The conclusion of the study re-analyzed the video clips to determine the nature and occurrence of distracted driving.
The top offenders? Electronic devices, adjusting controls, personal grooming and eating/drinking.
You can access the full report and view actual in-car video clips by visiting the Foundation's website.
Is That Trailer Covered?
We often get questions from our clients about the use of a trailer with their automobile. While it sounds simple, there is not just one answer.
If you own a personal automobile and are using a trailer that is specifically designed to be towed by a private passenger vehicle, then in most cases, you do have liability coverage automatically extending from your auto policy for the trailer. If, however, the trailer has to be modified to fit your private passenger vehicle, then you probably do not have liability coverage.
For physical damage coverage to apply to the trailer, you have to add that coverage specifically. Some homeowner policies will extend a very small amount of coverage for trailers - but with limited perils, such as no theft coverage away from your home, and no windstorm or hail coverage if left outside.
As always, consult your insurance professional in regards to YOUR specific situation. They have the knowledge to guide you in the right direction.
