Encourage Teens to Drive Safely
Parents can be the biggest influencers on teens’ choices behind the wheel if they take the time to talk with their teens about some of the biggest driving risks. During National Teen Diver Safety Week, (October 16–22), encourage parents and other concerned adults to have conversations with teens about the important rules they need to follow to stay safe behind the wheel. The Department of Transportation has developed fact sheets, sample news releases, social media messages, and more to amplify the safe driving message. Find them on the National Teen Driver Safety Week website.
