The Keys to Safer Teen Driving

The Keys to Safer Teen Driving

Every day, you teach your teen way more about safe driving than you realize. As a parent, you probably hand over the car keys to your teenage son or daughter with mixed emotions: relief, because you won’t have to play chauffeur much longer; pride, because learning to drive marks a rite of passage for your child; and, perhaps most of all, anxiety and fear.

You have good reason for concern. Nationally, traffic crashes rank as the No. 1 cause of death for 16- to 19-year-olds, according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. Every year, more than 3,000 teens die on the road, and 350,000 wind up in emergency rooms.
