Helping Teens to Drive Smarter

Parents say they want to make sure their kids get a lot of practice on the road, but the reality doesn't always square with that.

 

Marie Dodds with Triple A has some advice.

 

"About half of all parents report they want their teens to get a lot of practice behind the wheel, but when we look into it more, only one in four actually have their kids drive in varying conditions like bad weather, heavy traffic or unfamiliar roads."

 

Teens continue to have the highest crash rate of any age group, so it's critical parents give their kids a variety of driving conditions to practice in -- so they can be experienced in driving in them.
