National Teen Driver Safety Week

More than anything, we want our kids to be safe, especially when they start to drive. Talk with your teenager about making smart decisions while behind the wheel:

  • Drive defensively. If you assume that other drivers are not as skilled and thoughtful as you are, you will instinctively become more careful and cautious when on the road.
  • Try not to speed. When you speed, you have less time to react, less time to make the right decision.
  • Never drink and drive. Alcohol can seriously impair your decision-making skills and reaction time.
  • Take the keys away from friends who have been drinking.
  • Adults can set an example by practicing safe driving habits.
