Teen Driver Safety

Be the driver you want them to be.

Be a good example.

Learning to drive is exciting. It’s a first taste of freedom, and an important time to develop good habits. Let’s help teens learn good driving behaviors — not bad habits. We all share the responsibility of being good examples for young drivers on the road. Be the driver you want them to be.

Your driving habits matter.

Be the driver you want them to be.

Pass on your good looks.
Not your bad driving habits.

Parents, sometimes what you say isn’t nearly as loud as what you do. Especially when it comes to what you do in the car. Be an engaged driver. Wear your seatbelt. Your teens are watching you, and they look up to you more than you think. Good driving habits start with you.
