The dangers of teen speeding are real. Speeding increases the distance needed to be able to stop the car while reducing reaction time to avoid a potential collision. In fact, among serious crashes where teen driver error was the cause, 21 percent occurred from going too fast for road conditions.
Research shows that the combination of youth and inexperience puts younger drivers at high risk. Their inexperience means they have less ability to spot hazards, and their youth means they are particularly likely to take risks. In this way, crash risk not only reduces over time with experience but also is higher for drivers who start driving at a younger age .
Police are warning drivers about the dangers of speeding after pulling over two vehicles for travelling in excess of kilometres an hour within hours of each other. The first incident occurred on Highway in Whitby on Thursday afternoon. The second incident happened early Friday morning on Highway in Mississauga.
Compared to women, teenage girls have the upper hand when it comes to tearing up the race track. From age 13 to age 19, a teenage girl gradually increases speed from year to year. From a running start, the athlete sprints 60 meters and is timed at the meter point and again at the end of the sprint. The run time on the first 30 meters is subtracted from the total meter time and then rounded off to a 10th of a second.

Girls are not the only ones who go through puberty early if they have obesity. Boys with obesity enter puberty at an earlier age than average, according to a study that will be presented Sunday at ENDOthe Endocrine Society's annual meeting in New Orleans, La. In Chilean boys ages 4 to 7 years, both total body obesity and central obesity, or excess belly fat, were associated with greater odds of starting puberty before age 9, researchers from the University of Chile in Santiago, Chile reported.
Sex-specific differences that arise during puberty have a pronounced effect on the training process. However, the consequences this should have for goal-setting, planning and implementation of training for boys and girls of different ages remains poorly understood. The aim of this study was to quantify performance developments in athletic running and jumping disciplines in the age range and identify progression differences as a function of age, discipline and sex.
