Safe and Responsible Road Rules for Adolescent Drivers
Posted on Wednesday, February 10th, 2016 at 3:39 pm
Young drivers know but ignore the risks of driving and drinking or texting. Oftentimes, because they do not have experience handling or recognizing dangerous situations on the road, young people will fall victim to preventable accidents.
Parents play a key role in guiding our teen drivers by setting our own best example for improving safety while driving. Parents should talk to their teens and make sure that everyone is on the same page when it comes to safe driving.
Young drivers are more likely to speed, disregard traffic regulations, drive under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances, and partake in other risky driving behaviors. Young drivers may cause accidents because of their inexperience, or may be the victims by others because they lack the defensive driving skills.
Driving facts every teen should know:
- Don’t Speed
- Don’t Drink and Drive
- Always wear a seatbelt in the car
- Don’t Drive at night
- Don’t Drive Distracted
- Never Drive under the Influence
