Teen driver safety week kicks off today and runs through Saturday.
Last year, more than 1900 teenagers died in car crashes in the U.S. and more than 180,000 were injured.
If you have a teenage driver, it’s a good time to take a ride with them and review the rules of the road.
Here’s a few suggestions for subjects to review from the guys at eimports4Less:
1. Texting and driving. This is the #1 conversation going on today between teens and parents. Texting while driving makes you 23% more likely to have a crash, so it’s the most important subject to discuss this year.
2. Talking on the phone. Parents, if you have not yet invested in a Bluetooth device for your kid’s vehicle….get out there and get one bought. It’s the best investment you can make this year.
3. Give them a refresher course in driver’s education. Make sure to touch on subjects like defensive driving and looking ahead for dangers.
