your teen driver

Please! If you or your teen driver likes to blast your stereo while driving, be mindful of the churches that you are passing and turn down your music.

Require your teen to wear a seat belt and set firm penalties for breaking the rule. Seat belt use is the single best injury prevention measure a driver can take.
Eliminate distractions – including cell phone use while driving.
Spend time with your teen behind the wheel. Experience is a skill-builder.
Set a zero-tolerance policy for alcohol and drug use.
Know who your teen is riding with and whether that teen is a competent driver.
Prohibit new drivers from taking teen passengers along for the ride.
Set a curfew. Teenagers driving at night with passengers are 4 to 5 times more likely to crash than when driving alone during the day
