I’m writing this article because one of my customers wanted tips for young drivers and their parents. Having a young driver will bring extra gray hair to parents. Driving makes teenagers feel that they are gaining power and independence in their lives, but with this comes more responsibility. Young adults must realize that as they gain more freedom, they must also grow in maturity to handle this new responsibility.
Many parents are nervous about their teens getting behind the wheel, and for a good reason. If you ask me, it’s all about trusting and knowing your kids. Before you let your child drive, ask yourself if they are mature enough and if they have a good head on their shoulders. Being a good driver is all about attitude. One has to realize that driving is not a game and it must be taken seriously; it’s like having a 3,000 lb weapon in your hands. If you feel your child can handle this huge responsibility, then it’s time they get a license. If you feel your child is not ready at the legal age, go with your gut feeling. After all, I’ve seen too many young drivers die in car accidents and too many parents lose their insurance because of their young drivers’ numerous accidents.
Once you know your child is ready and they have earned the privilege to drive, you may want to follow some of these tips. Supervise them and practice with them as much as you can. Practice makes perfect and it will certainly boost your confidence and theirs in their driving ability. Make sure they always have their seatbelts on; that should be the very first thing they do when getting into the car. Be a good example. If you want your child to obey certain rules and regulations, you must practice what you preach and lead by example. No driving and texting or talking on their cell phone. No driving when they’re emotionally upset. Limit the amount of passengers your child has in the car with them; fatal car crashes increase with every extra passenger. Limit driving at night and set their curfew before midnight; nighttime driving is three times more dangerous than daytime driving. Teach young drivers to be defensive, not aggressive, drivers. Tell them to slow down; speed kills. Let them know to take their time when it rains or snows because bad weather makes the road more dangerous. Finally, make sure your kids vehicles are well maintained with good tires and brakes.
