Good driving habits must be a priority for teen drivers and their parents. Distracted driving, texting/phone use, speed, alcohol and seatbelt use should all be brought up regularly in conversation. Teens need guidance on what they can and cannot do safely while driving. And parents need the peace of mind to know their child is employing good habits, even when they’re not with them.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) recently issued a report pointing out that there’s a unique feature on more than 10-million vehicles that can help – and more parents are starting to use it.
National Teen Driver Safety Week is October 21-27, the perfect time to have a frank conversation with your teen about his/her driving habits.
