Parents Are the Key to Safe Teen Drivers

From the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
 
In the United States car crashes are the #1 killer of teens and take over 4,000 young lives every year.
 
That's 11 teen deaths each day that can be prevented.
 
As a parent, you should know that the main cause of teen crashes is driver inexperience. All new drivers—even straight-A students and "good kids"—are likelier than experienced drivers to be involved in a fatal crash. It's a fact.

The good news is that you can make a difference by getting involved with your teen's driving. Take advantage of the "Parents Are the Key" tools and resources. Learn about the most dangerous driving situations for your young driver—and how to avoid them.
