Toyota, Parents, and Teens work Together to Promote Safe Driving

Yesterday my blog focused on “How to Choose a Car for Your Teen”. Today’s focus will be on safe driving for teens and what parents can do to help their teens. Toyota, the largest automaker in the world, created a program titled “Toyota Driving Expectations”. This program is “designed to empower and educate teens and parents about driving and road safety through a unique combination of interactive hands on sessions and simulated defensive driving exercises”.

The program has four main goals for teens and parents:

* Learn defensive driving behaviors
* Identify the dangerous driving situations that they face daily
* Know what vehicles are capable of
* Understand the relationship between distraction and reaction time

To learn more about the Toyota Driving Expectations program, watch the YouTube video below.
