Don’t drive faster than the depth of your experience
Speeding is a significant problem among young drivers today. They do not seem to comprehend that they do not (not yet at least) have the skills needed to drive a car at a high speed or even exploit the limits of the car on public roads.
To compound the problem, teenagers today tend to feel the need to show off for friends, by speeding especially if they have had a few hours of virtual driving using a gaming console or their laptop. The reaction time needed, to drive a car at a high rate of speed, is intense and also requires concentration. In addition, the driver must be experienced enough to understand how the car reacts, when speeding. The driver needs to be able to anticipate and react to changing road conditions. Teenage drivers have usually gained none of these skills to any great degree and consequently they suffer from higher crash rates, related to speeding.
