October 18 through 26 marks National Teen Driver Safety Week. The Becker Law Office supports this awareness campaign promoting safe driving for teens.
And the statistics back up that anguish shared by parents of teen drivers everywhere. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reports:
Despite what they may say, your teens are paying attention to what you say and you remain their biggest influence, especially since you hold the keys to the car…literally. With that in mind, this year’s Safety week theme is “It Takes Two: Shared Expectations for Teens and Parents for Driving.” Here are things you can do as a parent to help tip the statistics in favor of your teen driver:
Driving is not a guaranteed birthright but a privilege with serious responsibilities. The Becker Law Office encourages you to sit down and discuss the rights and wrongs of this rite of passage with your teen driver during National Teen Driver Safety Week, and to continue that dialogue throughout the year while your teen continues to gain driving experience.
And as always, the Becker Law Office is here to help if you or your loved ones are injured in a motor vehicle accident.
