Teen Safety Behind The Wheel
Most teen car crashes occur during the first six to 12 months after receiving their license, but teens are half as likely to be involved in a crash when their parents set rules. There’s plenty you can do to help your teen beat the statistics. Provide plenty of parent-supervised driving practice, control the keys so you can go over driving plans each time they get behind the wheel, and co-develop your safety rules. Don’t forget to create a code word so your teen can notify you when they need to be picked up from an unsafe situation. And breathe!
