What violations or tickets do new drivers usually get?

My daughter will be driving soon and I want her to be prepared. What are some common violations that new drivers get? I want to hopefully teach her how to drive safely and avoid those types of situations.

“Common citations or tickets for new drivers are distracted driving (such as talking on the phone or texting) and speeding.
Because cell phones are subconsciously part of modern daily life, new drivers often aren’t aware of how distracting they are. New drivers often cause accidents or get tickets by using their phones while driving or not paying attention. Tack on a lack of experience, and it’s a recipe for disaster.
Speeding is also another common reason new drivers get tickets. New drivers often don’t think about the risks associated with speeding, such as causing an accident or losing control of the vehicle.
To ensure your daughter is prepared, you could enroll her in a driving training program. Once completed, you normally can also get a discount with your car insurance policy as well.
With average costs of car insurance around $6,000 a year for female teen drivers, you should also consider using the Jerry app. You can compare rates in minutes to find the best rate for your daughter or decide whether she’s better off riding a bicycle for a few years.”
