Parents: Keep Talking About “5 to Drive”

  • Start the conversation with your teen during Teen Driver Safety Week, but continue the conversation every day.
  • Even if it seems like they’re tuning you out, keep telling them. They’re listening, and these powerful messages will get through.
  • Get creative! Talking is just one way to discuss safe driving. You can write your teen a letter, leave sticky notes in the car, or use social media to get your message across.
  • Get it in writing. Create a parent-teen driving contract that outlines the rules and consequences for your teen driver. Hang the signed contract in a visible place.
