Motor Vehicle Crashes Are The Leading
Cause of Death for Teens (15-18 years old)
in the United States.


October 22, 2019 – Constant communication about safe driving skills is essential for teen drivers. Self-reported surveys show that teens with parents who set and enforce firm rules for driving typically engage in less risky driving behaviors and are involved in fewer crashes. Don’t look at the conversation as nagging or bothersome — your teen is counting on you to not only set a good example, but to enforce the rules. Keep the following in mind when talking to your teen:

  • Talk to your teen about safe driving practices and the consequences they’ll face if they don’t obey the rules of the road.
  • Get the facts about teen driving and share these statistics with your teen.
  • Become familiar with your State’s nighttime driving restrictions, passenger restrictions, and all the graduated driver licensing (GDL) restrictions, and help law enforcement and educators enforce them.
  • Be a good role model for your teen driver and set an example with your own safe driving habits.
  • Remind your teen that driving is a privilege, not a right, and it must always be taken seriously.
  • Set the rules before they hit the road, and make it clear to your teen that violating the rules will have serious repercussions.
