National Teen Driver Safety Week
A great week to start a very important discussion
Car crashes are the #1 cause of death among teenagers
OK, so you’ve probably heard a million times that car crashes are the #1 killer of teens in the United States.
And you’ve probably already heard that the leading cause of crash is due to inexperience.
National Teen Driver Safety Week is October 20-26, 2019, and is a great opportunity for parents to sit down with their teen drivers and discuss the importance of driving safety. Whether teens are driving a car, truck, or SUV, and whether they’ve just earned their license or have had it for years, the rules stay the same, and they shouldn’t have the keys if they don’t know the rules. Parents, the greatest dangers for teen drivers — and the areas of focus for your conversation — are alcohol consumption, inconsistent or no seat belt use, distracted driving, speeding, and driving with passengers in the vehicle.
