You talk to your teen a lot, but you, like most parents of teenagers, may wonder if your teen is listening to a word that you say. Is she hearing your message about drinking and driving? Is he understanding the perils of peer pressure? Are they ready for more independence and to drive without an adult in the car?

23 Words To Live And Drive By

As you get ready to let your child drive to school, to work, to an activity, or to a friend’s house, it is important that your child really hears what you have to stay about staying safe. Accordingly, in October 2013 the U.S. Department of Transportation announced a new initiative that asks parents to discuss five crucially important driving safety ideas with their children. Specifically, parents are being asked to talk about the following five topics. In just 23 words, you can say:

  1. No cell phone use or texting while driving
  2. No extra passengers
  3. No speeding
  4. No alcohol
  5. No driving or riding without a seat belt

Of course, other safety topics may also be important for your teen driver to hear about in Independence.
