Parents as teachers


November 8 is “Parents as Teachers Day,” and I encourage parents to get involved as their teens begin driving. Car crashes are the number one cause of death for teens, and most of these crashes involve inexperience. .

Parents play a significant role in preventing these crashes, especially since teens cite their parents as the leading influence on their driving behaviors.

The more experience our teen drivers have, the better drivers they become.
