Sixty percent of all vehicle crashes are caused by distracted teenage drivers. The stakes are high – but there are a number of things parents can do to prepare their children to learn to drive and help them learn safe driving habits.
As the parent of a new teen driver you worry about lots of things. You worry about your teen’s skills as a new driver. You worry about your teen being distracted by their cell phone, their friends, or about their desire to eat while driving. How can they stay focused on safe driving and the road ahead?
Rather than simply hoping your teen arrives safely, you can begin the conversation now – teaching them about common distractions and how distractions can lead to a crash.
