Help keep your teen driver safe.

You can't always be with them, but they can take your guidance wherever they go.

Lay some ground rules.

  • Discuss when, where, how and with whom your teen can drive
  • Limit the number of passengers in the car
  • Establish a curfew
  • Insist your driver (and passengers) wear seatbelts at all times
  • Limit teen driving during high-risk times, like Friday or Saturday nights
  • Set driving-area limits
  • Prohibit driving under the influence—or riding with friends who are

Avoid distracted driving dangers.

  • Talking and texting on a cell phone
  • Eating and drinking
  • Focusing on passengers
  • Reading maps or other materials
  • Using a navigation system
  • Changing the music you're listening to
