National Safety Council promotes parent education during National Teen Driver Safety Week
ITASCA, Ill., Oct. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The most significant threat facing teens is the vehicle sitting in their parents' driveways. Yet, many parents remain under-educated about teen driving safety and the risks new drivers face. In observance of National Teen Driver Safety Week Oct. 20-26, the National Safety Council today released a comprehensive list of things many parents do not – but need to – know about teen driver safety:
"Parents literally hold the keys to developing good teen drivers," said John Ulczycki, vice president of strategic initiatives at NSC. "National Teen Driver Safety Week is the perfect time for parents to learn the facts and put their knowledge to action. The more parents know, the further most will go to protect their teens, which will keep our roads safer for all motorists."
The theme of National Teen Driver Safety Week, 'It takes two: Shared expectations for parents and teens for driving,' is in lockstep with the Council's recent focus on parent education around teen driver safety. DriveitHOME, an initiative of NSC, is a website created for parents by parents that focuses on the most important things parents can do to protect teen drivers. Go to driveithome.org to sign up for weekly driving tips and other resources.
