Study shows that low-priced old cars are deadly and dangerous for teenagers

One of the most popular Christmas gifts on the wish lists of teenagers is a car, but buying a car for your son or daughter can be a daunting task since there are a lot of factors you need to consider such as price, safety and essential features. For the vast majority of parents they are left with two choices: cheap aged car or a brand new car.

To help parents decide on what car to pick there is a survey that has been disclosed recently that favors opting for the newest car they can manage to pay for.

The study published by an online journal Injury Prevention had discovered that roughly half of the teenagers that were killed in accidents for the past few years were aboard vehicles that were at least 11 years old and missing safety features that are present in newest models.

These days many parents find it difficult to make both ends meet in buying a new car for their teenage son or daughter, but Anne McCartt, senior vice president for research at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety said that, “Our message to parents is to get the most safety [out of the cars] they can afford [to buy].”
