Curb Your Teenager’s Distracted Driving Habits!

teen driving alhambra caStaying focused on the roads is the only way to drive!

The dangers of distracted driving are well-known at this point. Anything from cell phones to futzing with the radio, or applying make-up can shift your focus from the road. With constant attachment to cellphones, smartwatches, and anything technological, teenagers are notorious for being some of the most distracted drivers on the road.

Unfortunately, newspapers, magazines, and the internet host daily accounts of car accidents that have resulted from distracted driving. Before spring break, summer road trips, and the winter weather hits your teen, be sure to review some safe driving habits that will keep them safe on the roads!

Go over these rules of the road with your teenager that is behind the wheel:

  • Turn off your phone. Put your phone out of reach or shut it down before you start driving. Out of sight, out of mind, right? Any text or call you receive while driving isn’t so important that you should put your life, and other drivers’ lives, on the line.
  • Be organized. Whether you need to get out your parking pass, set your GPS, or apply a touch of lipstick, do all of this before starting your car. That way, you’ll be better prepared and you won’t need to take your eyes off the road.
  • Limit passengers. Teenagers are known for showing off in front of their friends. Whether it’s speeding or swerving, friends can be a bad influence. Limit the number of passengers your teenager can drive until they get more comfortable on the road.
  • Time it wisely. Most accidents and collisions happen at night. Limit your teen to driving only in daylight for a few months.
  • The Omnipresent rules. Never ever drink and drive!
  • Find zen. We all need a little peace and quiet in our lives. Make your driving time, quiet time to concentrate and be calm!
