Your teenager is a terrible driver
Friday, November 15th, 2013

Parental involvement is one of the most important factors in keeping teen drivers safe. But most of us assume that our teenagers are better, safer drivers than they really are.

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

For example, almost no parent thinks that their teenager regularly sends or receives text messages while driving. In an AT&T survey of teens, 89% said they reply to a text message or email within five minutes, even if they are driving a car.

Commit to making your kid safer on the road.

  • 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.
