National Safety Council’s Alive at 25 Parent Program for Teen Drivers

This week’s blogs have focused on teen drivers. Remember, according to the CDC teens are more likely to die in a motor vehicle accident than from any other cause. What can you do to help your teen develop safe driving habits that will help them survive their most turbulent years (16 -24) as a driver?

The National Safety Council developed the “Alive at 25” online program. This program focuses on:

* Encouraging parent/teen partnership throughout the entire process, from learning to drive through independent driving.
* Offering practical solutions so parents can take responsibility to reduce the unique risks and hazards teen drivers face.
* Helping parents understand teens’ need for defensive driver training.
* Examining how to approach Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) laws, in addition to those related to safety belts, speeding, and alcohol and drugs.
* Providing a recommended example of an effective Parent/Teen Driver Contract, and discussing the importance of how parents and teens can use it to manage their driving experience.
