To ensure, first off, that your car and your family are safe we want to offer you some safety driving tips for the younger drivers in your household.
Teen Driving Tips
Here are a few great tips to share with the new drivers in your life:
- Always wear a seatbelt! Teach you teen that the first thing they must do before even starting the car is to put on the seatbelt. Most teens learn safe driving by example, so it’s best to always wear your seatbelt in the car. Seatbelts not only help prevent injuries caused by collisions but are required by law to be worn.
- Eliminate distractions as much as possible. Distractions while driving are more prevalent than ever. 10 percent of all drivers under the age of 20 in fatal crashes were reported as distracted at the time of the accident. This is hard lesson to implement. Teens typically have loud music, friends in seats, and cellphones ringing, which are all major distractions. Teach them to eliminate as many as possible while driving.
- An important part of safe driving is driving defensively. Defensive driving tips include being on high alert for other driver’s moves as well as being completely aware of your surroundings. Being able to anticipate other motorists’ moves is crucial to staying safe on the road. This means being alert, and paying attention at all times.
- No texting. Ever. It can wait! Stress to your teen that texting and driving is extremely dangerous, and more and more people are dieing every day in accidents because of it. Cellphone use at all should be hands free, but the best lesson you can teach them is to avoid temptation, to keep their phone out of sight and out of reach!
Don’t forget all the basics, they should have learned already, like obeying the speed limit and driving slower in difficult weather. A great idea is to make them sign a contract or a pledge to not text and drive. Make it fun for them and it won’t seem like so much of a lesson as a way of life.
