Tips for teen drivers and their parents

Back-to-school, specifically back-to-high-school, marks a new generation of drivers on their way to first period. While these first time drivers are excited to drive themselves to campus, parents back home might be a little worried. Here are some tips for teen drivers and their parents.

Buckle up, hang up the phone, slow down, and don’t drink and drive. These are all common tips that all teenagers should already know but still be reminded of. It’s no secret that teenagers are impulsive, and there always seems to be a sense of invulnerability during that time of adolescence so there’s no reason for parents to not at least remind their teenagers about these common sense instructions. But do give teenagers some credit! Since 1982, fatalities of 16-20 year olds from drunk driving dropped 26 percent.

Limit passengers. A teenager can already be easily distracted while on the road, too many friends in the car can add to that.

Check the weather. Beginner drivers may simply have no experience driving in bad weather. If possible, go out into a safe environment—parking lots are always reliable—with your teenager during inclement weather and let them get use to driving on wet or icy surfaces.
