Teen Drivers & Summer Driving

School is wrapping up for the year, and teen drivers are ready to hit the road this summer.

In a recent article by Denny Jacob, he discusses summer driving risks for teenagers.  We thought it would be good to repeat these for you to share with your teens.

  • Seat Belt Use – Remind them to wear their seat belts at all times when driving
  • Driving Conditions – Make sure your teen knows how to drive in heavy rain, heavily congested areas, fog, and flooding
  • Distracted Driving – Keep all electronics out of reach – no texting
  • Speeding – Open roads are not conditions for speeding or drag racing
  • Driving With Passengers – Focus on the road, not the passengers
  • Alcohol Use – Has you teen take the pledge to not drink and drive
  • Difficulty Judging Space and Time – Parking and judging length and width of a car can be challenging to a teen and lead to both fender benders and side swiping.  Your teen should be comfortable with parallel parking.

Take ten minutes to talk with your teens and prepare them for a safe summer.
