Personal Injury Law and Teen Drivers—Can Video Games Prevent Accidents in Boise, Idaho?
Video games have been blamed for everything from reckless driving to crime, but can they actually prevent teen driving accidents? A recent University of Rochester study found that action video game players were more likely to make the right decision faster when it came to driving, reading, or finding a friend in a crowd. Emergency situations that arise when driving may require a person to make a critical split-second decision. The University of Rochester found that for video game players, these decisions are better and faster. Teen drivers are often at a disadvantage when it comes to making quick decisions behind the wheel due to lack of experience. Yet, skills acquired while playing video games may be able to help them out and prevent serious accidents.
