National Teen Driver Safety Week Is A Good Start.
Here’s a great idea that gives parents and schools the chance to focus on this critical safety issue.
The U.S. Department of Transportation devised this excellent awareness program to curtail the tragic loss of 2,333 teens and 221,313 teens severely injured after being in an auto accident in 2015.
Parents are not usually usually driving with their teens so they must teach and enforce these five crucial driving behaviors to prevent car and truck crashes:
- No using a cell phone or texting
- No piling passengers in the car
- No speeding
- No drinking alcohol
- No driving without wearing a seat belt
