Whether you purchase a new or previously owned automobile, you may be concerned about your child’s ability to navigate the streets safety even though he or she already has a driver’s license. That’s when sharing some safe driving tips with your teen can help to put your mind at ease.

Here are some tips you may want to share with your young driver:

  • Eliminate Distractions: Remind your teen how important it is to remain focused on the road and their car when they’re behind the wheel. Distracted driving has become one of the leading causes of accidents in the United States in recent years. Your child should eliminate as many distractions as possible before they start to drive, including silencing or even turning off their cell phone.
  • Slow Down: Tell your new driver that the faster they drive, the longer it will take for their car to stop. A higher rate of speed also means a greater, more powerful impact if they’re involved in an accident. Advise your child that they should slow down and avoid exceeding the speed limit.
  • Buckle Up: Many roadway accidents could be prevented every year simply by drivers and passengers buckling their seatbelts. Make sure your child and anyone traveling with your kid buckles up every time they go for a ride. Be sure your teen knows to buckle up even when they’re a passenger in someone else’s automobile.
