Health Tip of the Day

When Your Teen Slides Behind the Wheel

  • Monitor your child's driving whenever possible. Set ground rules for unsupervised driving: no alcohol, tobacco or other drugs; no cell phone use while driving; always wear seat belts.

  • Restrict night driving by 16-year-olds. Their accident rates are twice as high for each mile driven at night as in daytime.

  • Don't rely solely on high school driving classes. There's no proof they produce safer drivers or prevent accidents. Check your teen's driving skills by riding as a passenger with him or her.

  • Limit the number of teen and other non-family passengers. They distract new drivers and may encourage risks, such as swerving or running a light.

  • Pull your teen's license if he or she drinks and drives, speeds or gets a traffic ticket.
