2013 Safe Driving Resolutions for Cape Coral Parents and Teens

by Carmen Dellutri on February 15, 2013

Port Charlotte accident attorneyNow that 2013 is in full swing, many of us have started to neglect our well-intentioned resolutions. Rather than admit defeat, we suggest doubling down your efforts or even considering new goals.

For Cape Coral teen drivers and their parents, safe driving resolutions are extremely important. Mile for mile, teenaged drivers are involved in three times as many fatal crashes as everyone else on the road.

If you aren’t sure what your goals for 2013 should entail, here are some suggestions for parents and teens from Teendriving.com:

Teens:

  • Don't use your cell phone or text while driving.  Don't answer a call or a text message while driving.
  • Always practice safe driving and obey the driving laws of your state or locality.
  • Buckle up for safety and make sure all passengers use their safety belts as well.
  • Don't drink and drive--or use drugs and drive or ride in the car with anyone whose is drinking or on drugs.
  • Be a courteous driver on the road
  • Encourage safe driving at your school and in your community
  • Let your parents know where you're going and when you'll be back.

Parents:

  • Set a good driving example for your teens by obeying the driving laws of your state or locality.
  • Don't use your cell phone or text while driving--set the example you want your teens to follow.
  • Spend 100 hours of in car training for teens learning to drive
  • Provide a safe car for teens to drive
  • Give your teen constructive critiques of their driving and keep your temper in check
  • Set realistic goals, expectations, and consequences for your new teen driver.
