Welcome

Tips to ensure a safer Winter driving season include:

  • Wear a seat belt on every trip
  • Designate an alcohol and drug-free driver or arrange alternate transportation
  • Get plenty of sleep and take regular breaks to avoid fatigue
  • Never use a cell phone behind the wheel, even hands-free
  • Do not allow teens to drive with their friends. A single young passenger can increase a teen driver's fatal crash risk 44 percent.[iii] 
  • Learn about your vehicle's safety systems and how to use them. My Car Does What can help drivers understand the ins and outs of features such as adaptive cruise control, blind spot warning systems and backup cameras.

As temperatures continue to drop, it's important to take some steps to make sure your vehicle is ready for winter. 

  • Have a mechanic check your ignition and brake system, battery level and cables, belts and hoses,and antifreeze level.
  • Maintain proper tire inflation, tread, and sidewalls
  • Make sure all your lights are working.

 

DriveitHOME™ offers parents proven ways they can help their teens reduce crash risk while building confidence and skills during the first year of licensure and beyond.  We are encouraging you to visit driveithome.org and share the visually-compelling materials and use them to supplement your existing teen driving materials. 

DriveitHome resources include easy-to-understand text and videos and parents can sign up to receive daily tips through email and text messages.
