It will soon be summer, which means that there will be many new and inexperienced drivers getting behind the wheel of a vehicle, either as a driver-in-training, for a summer job, summer school, or just for fun with their friends. Will they recognize a potentially dangerous situation and know how to avoid it? Will they know what to do in the event of a roadside breakdown? Can they stay focused on the road? This is why it is of utmost importance that parents not only prepare their child for the road but that the vehicle they drive is in tip-top condition.

Part of the training new drivers should receive is how to recognize the signs indicating car problems. They should be made aware of the importance of taking care of recommended automotive service items, such as oil changes, tire rotations, changing flat tires, and brake inspections. Parents certainly don’t want to worry that their child is stranded somewhere with a dead battery, clogged air filter, or overheating engine because of low oil.

There are several guidelines that parents should discuss with their child and agree upon together before handing over the keys to the car:

  1. Accidents – Make sure your child knows what to do in the event of an accident. They should know where to find the registration and insurance information, as well as who to call for help.
  2. No Cell Phones – Even when on a Bluetooth speaker, talking on a cell phone while driving reduces reaction time. Texting is one of the worst distractions as it involves manual, visual, and cognitive actions. Find a safe place to pull over if it is necessary to use a cell phone.
  3. No Extra Passengers – A published study found that teen drivers were two-and-a-half times more likely to engage in risky behaviors when teen peers were in their vehicle. It was also reported that the risk of a fatal crash goes up in direct relation to the number of teenage passengers.
  4. No Speeding – Speeding is a major factor contributing to fatal crashes. Plus, there are consequences for not following the posted speed limit.
  5. No Alcohol – It has been found that drivers between ages 15 and 20 are at a far greater risk of death in a crash involving alcohol than adults. They should understand that there are consequences for breaking the law, such as a trip to jail, loss of a driver's license, attorney fees, court costs, fines, insurance consequences, losing academic eligibility for college acceptance and scholarships, and the worst scenario, loss of life in an accident.
  6. Buckle Up – Seat belts have been proven to protect and save lives and can help drivers maintain control of a vehicle in emergency situations.

A word to parents: Practice good driving habits and follow the rules yourself, as your actions speak louder than words!
