Safety Behind the Wheel @ 206 226 6783

TALKING TO TEENS ABOUT DRIVING

Instilling safe driving habits in your teen shouldn't be a bore for them or for you-- here's how to make them aware of road safety and the risk of drunk driving.

Young adults in the U.S. can't legally buy or drink alcohol until they are 21, which makes teen drunk driving statistics all the more sobering. One in five teenage drivers involved in fatal crash in 2010 had ingested alcohol, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and nearly one million high school teens drank alcohol and drove in 2011. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, teen drivers are also far more likely to have alcohol-related accidents. Roughly one in four teens reported recently riding with a driver who had been drinking.

Through example, joint discussion and clear rules, you can reduce the danger for your teen. Here's how to help prevent underage drinking and driving:

GET HELP TALKING WITH YOUR TEEN. Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) offers conversation starters and tips on its website. Find ways to connect with and educate your teens, including a Parent/Teen Contract to help establish family driving rules.

SET AN EXAMPLE. Drinking and driving is just as illegal for adults as for teens. If you have a couple of drinks at dinner, hand the keys to a licensed family member or friend who hasn't been drinking. It reinforces the idea that drinking and driving dont mix.

DISTRACTIONS: SEATBELTS: ALWAYS. No texts, phone calls or GPS changes while driving. And seatbelts are mandatory.

HAVE AN EMERGENCY PLAN. Make it clear that you'll always provide a no-strings-attached ride home, or pay for a cab, if your teen does drink or is out with someone who consumed alcohol.

GET EDUCATED. Enroll in our Smart Driving School www.smartdrivingschools.com we give Teen SMART lectures and instructions in our Teens Drivers Education class and Individual behind the wheel driving lessons. We teach defensive driving.

  4. I know what you mean. It can make a huge difference, I have been thinking about having my Daughter go to a driving school, here in Winnipeg. She tends to not pay as much attention as she should wile driving, and I just want her to be safe, and to not hurt anyone else either.

  7. Airine, thanks for the post. I love that you addressed drinking and driving, and the importance of pressuring how bad it is. I have seen too many mistakes with drinking and driving. I believe it is not as pressed in driving courses as it should be.

  8. For a teenager it is a dream to start driving. For the parents it is a terrifying sight. We want our teenagers to drive safely and think safely while driving. That is why it is important that people that start driving to go through driving education. http://www.247texasdriversafety.com/

  10. It is scary to see statistics like these. Teens should not even be drinking at their young age. From day one I have been a very cautious driver and it just frightens me to learn about people who don't take driving seriously.

  20. This is great. It's us as parents to be an example to our kids. Your kids look up to you and want to be like you. Be an example to your kids and even their friends. I like how you talked about drinking at dinner and handing the keys to a licensed driver. If I have a couple drink I would love to have my kid take the keys and drive but I also want him to be taught by a good driver instructor.

  22. I have a teenager that learned how to drive last year. She isn't taking driving very maturely. She is taking too many risks. I would prefer she go back to a driving school just to learn more about what it means to be a safe driver. Could I do something like that?

  23. I agree with all of these facts. It is important to teach your kids how to drive and how to be safe. Your kids watch you when you drive and you want to make sure you are doing everything right so you can be an example. I learned to drive and to drive the correct way from a driving school and I'm glad to say I am a great driver and example.

  25. My younger brother is just about old enough to get his driving permit. My parents have been trying to find a good place that can teach him lately. It would be good if they could find somewhere that really stresses the importance of defensive driving.

  28. I have a teenage daughter who's in driving school right now. It can be kind of difficult trying to talk to her about safe driving. She's a good girl, but I want to make sure that she knows what to do and what not to do when she gets behind the road. I think I might take a look at the Students Against Destructive Decisions website so that I can know how to talk to my daughter when I need to.

  29. My niece is going to be going through driving school this fall. It's kind of neat to see just how excited she is to start learning how to drive. I just hope that the instructors stress how important driving defensively is, as well as how important it is to drive without any distractions in the car.

  37. The post is superb. Me to learn a lot about the driving lesson. Its really very important to make students aware about the driving school and state driving laws. Before going for practical driving test all need to get traffic school certification. State approved Nevada online traffic school allows you to complete your traffic course anytime anywhere you wish to complete.

  38. We are sending our son to a driving school for sure, and we plan to do so for all the kids. Even if they know basically what they are doing, extra help never hurts. I want them to be good defensive drivers so that I don't have to worry about them on the road.

  43. Thanks for the great tips. As a parent of 4 teens I am constantly aware of the dangers of driving. You are absolutely correct though that you need to communicate with your teens and set a good example. We have instilled in our teens the importance of seat belts so much so that they will yell at me if I ever start driving without engaging my own. Not drinking goes without saying as does not texting or using electronics while behind the wheel. http://bicksdrive.com/AdultRemedial.html

  44. It is extremely important for everybody to know that drinking and driving is wrong. Teens who are starting to learn how to drive should be taught about the different situations where people drank under the influence and did not survive. Teens should be aware of everything while they are driving and should understand the negatives with driving. http://www.abouttowndriver.com/en/services.html

  59. Getting a punctured tire never happens amid an advantageous time. This is particularly valid in case you're out on the town with a pretty woman. Nothing ruins a date more than sitting in the auto for 2 hours sitting tight for roadside help since you don't know how to change a tire. Furthermore, women, nothing inspires a man more than a lady that can change a tire! All things considered, really, that is not valid. There are presumably more amazing things you can do. In any case, hello, it's a decent ability to have and along these lines, when you get a punctured tire, you don't need to sit tight for some frightening tow truck fella to come and play with you while he changes your tire.
