Just like most things in life, parents know best. This holds especially true when it comes to teen driving. During National Teen Driver Safety Week this October, the U.S. Department of Transportation and the National Traffic Safety Administration (NTSHA) urged all parents and caregivers to start setting and enforcing “safe driving ground rules for their teens.”
According to an article written by NewsTribune.com, “1,963 young drivers between the ages of 15 to 20 died and an additional 187,000 young drivers were injured in motor vehicle crashes in 2010. One out of ten drivers involved in a fatal crash was between the ages of 15 and 20.”
Enrolling your teen in a reliable driving school is just the first step in getting them prepared for taking the keys. Be sure to create and sign a parent-teen driving contract, set aside time to drive with your teen in multiple driving situations, and to discuss your teen’s progress, experiences and concerns.
