In just a few short years my husband and I will watch our son retire his bicycle and get behind the wheel of a vehicle. In short, he’ll be a teen driver. While I know that my son will spend the next few years learning the ins and outs of operating a vehicle, I also think it’s important that he understand roadside safety. Given the fact that most teenage drivers can’t afford reliable transportation, odds are that he’ll be driving a vehicle that more than likely will experience a roadside breakdown, a flat tire or perhaps even a forgetful lockout. When I can’t be there to pull him out of a jam, I know the AllState Good Hands Roadside Assistance program will be. A few weeks ago my husband and I signed up for this program because it offers many of the services I’ll want available to my son should he ever need them.

Knowing that you may have a teen driver on the road in the near future, or even now, I want to share a few safety tips that will keep your teen safe. One thing I want to stress is that keeping lines of communication open is so very important especially when it comes to laying down the rules of the road.

  1. Make it clear that seat belts should be worn by the driver and all passengers of the car. Not only does it save lives, but it’s the law!
  2. Offer easy ways for your child to avoid using the cell-phone in the car for chatting and texting. You can provide your teen driver with a blue tooth hands-free system to make the rule easy to enforce.
  3. Remind your teen driver of the dangers of alcohol and drugs, especially how they relate to the impaired driving.

Disclosure – I am a compensated blogger sharing the program on behalf of AllState.
