Don't hand over the keys to the car until your teen driver makes these promises:
- No cell phone use or texting while driving,
- No extra passengers,
- No speeding,
- No alcohol, and
- No driving or riding without a seat belt.
Our teenagers learn by example, and so practice these tips yourselves. The functional listening ability of a teenager maybe compromised, so you may need to remind them of the 5 to Drive rules, daily.
Thanks for reading. What rules do you have prior to allowing your teen to drive?
