Summer will soon be here and that means that many young drivers will be getting behind the wheel of a vehicle to possibly go to a job, summer school, or just out to have fun with their friends. Because you will not be there to protect them from a potentially dangerous situation, it is vital that they are prepared for the road. It is important to also prepare the vehicle for the road.

First, make sure that all recommended automotive service items have been taken off. New drivers should understand the importance of oil changes, tire rotations, good wipers, how to change a flat tire, etc. Along with that, make sure that all automotive repair issues have been fixed. New drivers generally are not experienced enough to recognize the signs indicating a pending automotive repair issue. So parents, make sure your young driver won’t be stranded somewhere with a dead battery, clogged air filter, or overheating engine.

Before handing over the keys, here a few suggested rules that should be discussed and agreed upon, such as:

  1. No Cell Phones – Talking on a cell phone while driving reduces reaction time. Texting, among the worst of distractions, involves manual, visual, and cognitive actions. If it is necessary to use a cell phone, they find a safe place to pull over.
  2. No Extra Passengers – In one study, teen drivers were two-and-a-half times more likely to engage in risky behaviors when teen peers were in their vehicle. According to this research, the risk of a fatal crash goes up in direct relation to the number of teenage passengers.
  3. No Speeding –Speeding is a major factor contributing to fatal crashes. As with all drivers, teens should understand the potential consequences of not following the posted speed limit.
  4. No Alcohol – Drivers between 15 and 20 years old are at far greater risk of death in crashes involving alcohol than adults. If they survive, they should understand the consequences of breaking the law, such as a trip to jail, loss of a driver's license, attorney fees, court costs, fines, and insurance consequences. Academic eligibility, college acceptance, and scholarship awards could also be lost.
  5. Always Buckle Up – Seat belts help drivers maintain control of their vehicle in emergency situations and are the best way to protect themselves and their passengers whether driving across town or just around the neighborhood.

Message to Parents: You are the main influence in molding your young adult into a safe and capable driver. Modeling good habits and following the rules speak louder than talking!
