Instilling good driving habits in your kids

Traffic accidents are the number one cause of death among young people ages 16-24, killing more than the next four causes combined. What is it about teens and driving that creates such risk? How can we help to reduce that risk, and how early in our children’s lives should our efforts begin?

 

Here are helpful suggestions Marti mentioned when talking with host Pat Evans:

1.  Teach your children to be safe passengers from early in childhood

2. Know the laws for teen drivers and use those as a minimum standard

3. Use a Parent-Teen Driving Contract to clarify expectations and consequences

4.  Form a parent network of adults who commit to enforcing common rules and watching out for each other’s kids

5.  Be an example of safe, distraction-free driving
