National Teen Driver Safety Week is a great reminder for parents to have positive conversations to help reinforce safe driving practices.  Inexperience behind the wheel increases the risks for teen drivers so simple yet important reminders can go a long way.

Avoid Distracted Driving

According to information gathered by the NHSTA, over 3,000 people were killed in 2020 as a direct result of distracted driving.  Explore safe driving apps that can be installed on your device that can monitor driving habits and alert you if risky behavior is detected.  These applications along with phone settings can prevent device usage while driving to help reduce unnecessary risks.

Buckle Up!

Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for teens 15 – 18.  Fastening your seatbelt before you drive is a fundamental step to protecting yourself and any passengers in your vehicle.


Don’t Speed!

There were over 11,000 deaths directly related to speeding in 2020.  It can be tempting to drive faster when running late.  Take note of your driving patterns.  If you notice it is common for you to be running late, carve out more time for travel.  Better time management significantly reduces the pressure to speed.  Budget an extra five and arrive alive!
