It’s National Teen Safe Driving Week. If you have a teenager who can drive or who is about to start, this week provides the perfect opportunity to discuss safe driving habits that can help prevent his or her causing an accident. Talking about safe driving behaviors can also help your teenager become more focused and attentive, which may help them avoid being involved in an accident caused by someone else as well.
The sad truth is, most car accidents involving teenagers are caused by teen drivers. Sadder still, many of these are serious or even fatal. By visiting with your teen frequently and modeling good driving behavior when you are behind the wheel, you can help protect your child from catastrophic injury or death. Take time this week to sit down with your teen to check in on driving habits and to provide guidance where needed.
