IMPROVING Parents' and Teen Drivers' EXPERIENCE BEHIND THE WHEEL

 

 

 

Supervised driving sessions are the last, best chance for parents to influence the skills and behavior of their teen drivers. The Parent's Supervised Driving Program is a resource for parents to utilize when teaching their teen to drive.

 

The Facts

 

Did you know that automobile crashes are the number one cause of death among teens and that 16-19 year olds have the highest crash rate? new drivers are four times more likely to be killed and fourteen times more likely to be injured than other drivers. studies have found that speed and inexperience are the main causes of crashes amongst teen drivers.

 

Recent studies have been aimed at discovering the importance of the parent during the teen supervised driving process. Driving Through the Eyes of Teens, a study conducted by the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and State Farm Insurance in February 2012 found:

  • Teen drivers whose parents are highly involved were 50% less likely to crash, 71% less likely to drive intoxicated, two times more likely to wear seat belts and 30% less likely to use a cell phone.

A study conducted in October 2010 by the AAA Foundation, Parents, Teens and the Learner Stage of Graduated Licensing found:

  • Only 4% of parents use any resource when teaching their teen to drive.

  • Parents stop the supervised driving process early.

  • Parents over-estimate time spent supervising their teen driver.

  • During the parental supervision process, the experience that the teen driver receives in multiple conditions is limited.
