Remind your teen that driving under the influence of any impairing substance, including illicit or prescription drugs, could have deadly consequences.
More than half of teen drivers wish they learned more about driving safely on ice, snow, or wet roads.
"Cell phone use continues to be a serious and often deadly distraction for all drivers, but it's a significant problem among young, inexperienced drivers", said Rhonda Craft, Director of the California Office of Traffic Safety. Michelin's "Coaching Your Teen Driver" effort provides a playbook full of tips, hands-on drills and tools that parents can use as a conversation starter to help teens master safe driving skills.
"The extraordinarily high teen crash rates are unacceptable and it is our core mission to save lives", says Charlie Klauer, a research scientist and the leader of the Teen Risk and Injury Prevention Group at Virginia Tech Transportation Institute.

"When I first assembled the Teen Driver Safety Task Force, we knew we faced a hard task", Secretary of State Jesse White said. In 2015, 531 passengers died in a auto, truck, or SUV driven by a teen driver, and 58 percent of those passengers were NOT buckled up at the time of the fatal crash. The CHP has released a mobile application (app) for Start Smart, created to assist young people through the process of obtaining their California driver license. We can not stress enough the importance of educating teen drivers, parents, and the public at large about potential risks and the best methods to alleviate them. Education of new drivers and their families is regarded as a critical function by the CHP to help keep everyone safe on California's roadways. The game plan includes key offensive and defensive driving plays that parents and teen drivers can practice together. In 2015, nearly one-third (29 percent) of teen passenger vehicle drivers involved in a fatal crash were speeding at the time of the crash.
Making sure teen drivers stay safe is always a priority, not just during National Teen Driver Safety week. Ask your teen not to text while they're driving and to limit other distractions, such as eating, fiddling with controls, or talking to passengers.
Avoid Driving Tired. Teens are busier than ever - studying, extracurricular activities, part-time jobs, and spending time with friends are among the long list of things they do to fill their time. This is a risky habit that can lead to drowsy driving. "We need parents to set the rules before their teens hit the road", added Martinez.
If you're thinking of helping your teen driver stay safe by passing down your vehicle, or purchasing one for them, but are anxious that bad credit may stand in the way of a new ride, let Auto Credit Express help.
