Summer Means More Teen Crashes

Six ways to keep your young drivers safe

BYStaff
With high school graduations and summer approaching, many teen drivers will quickly trade their books for brakes, spending more time behind the wheel. Unfortunately, most families are unaware of the dangers that accompany teen drivers during these months. 
 
The time between Memorial Day and Labor Day is known as the “100 Deadliest Days for Teen Drivers.” As a premier resource for all things teen-driver related, AAA is here to help with the following tools and tips to keep your teen driver safe:
 
• Visit AAA’s Keys2Drive website, to brush up on teen driving laws, and find a wealth of tips and resources aimed at keeping young drivers safer.
 
• Implement a parent-teen driving agreement that clearly spells out rules, conditions, restrictions, and consequences of your teen’s driving. A sample agreement can also be found on the Keys2Drive website. 
 
• Increase the safety of your teen driver and save on their auto insurance with the completion of the teenSMART program.
 
• Select a quality driving school. Parents can use AAA Arizona’s Approved Driving School Network to find a quality driving school in the Phoenix metropolitan area. View a list of schools.
 
• Take advantage of driver training programs. Several programs are available to fit your family’s needs and potentially earn you substantial insurance discounts. Learn more about each driver training program.
 
• And even if your teen isn't driving just yet, consider AAA's Permit Prep 101, a course that prepares teens to take their written permit test. Participants must register for this course.
