Preventing Teen Auto Accidents This Fall

Preventing Teen Auto Accidents This Fall

Teenagers across the country head back to school during August and September. Unfortunately, back-to-school time correlates with an increased risk of teen driving accidents. Teenagers are more likely to be involved in a crash than adults because of their lack of experience. To keep your teen driver safe this fall, it is important to provide proper guidance. We encourage parents to review the information below and talk to their kids on how they can stay safe behind the wheel.

10 Tips for Keeping Your Teen Driver Safe

Consider these tips to help prevent your teen from being involved in an auto accident as the new school year begins:

  1. Do not allow your teen to drive at night until he or she gains sufficient experience.
  2. Do not allow your teen to use a cell phone while driving.
  3. Educate your teen about the safe use of GPS navigation systems and the radio or other audio devices while traveling by car.
  4. Do not allow your teen to drive with passengers in the car.
  5. Do not allow your teen to drive during times of inclement weather.
  6. Do not allow your teen to drive on roads that are unfamiliar.
  7. Travel with your teen on a regular basis to understand how his or her driving skills are progressing.
  8. Be a good role model by following the rules of the road and avoiding distracted or impaired driving.
  9. Require your teen to wear a seat belt whenever traveling in a car.
  10. Do not allow your teen to drive after taking prescription or over-the-counter medications that could impair his or her ability to drive.
