Your teenager is a terrible driver

Parental involvement is one of the most important factors in keeping teen drivers safe.

But most parents assume that our teenagers are better, safer drivers than they really are.

89% of teens said they reply text message or email within five minutes even if they are driving a car, according to an AT&T survey.

Consequently, too many of us are not talking with our teenagers about good driving habits and motor vehicle safety.

Commit to making your kid a safer driver

  • Set a good example. Demonstrate safe driving habits: focus on the road, and obey the speed limit.
  • Trust, but verify. Vehicle monitoring systems and apps can help track your teen’s driving during the crucial learning period.    
  • Get a parent-teen safe driving agreement. This contract from the CDC sets clear rules, and is a good reminder of the responsibility that comes with operating a motor vehicle.
