Excellent Safe Driving Websites For Teen Drivers

Posted on 02 November 2014 by Monica Zech

Several great websites for teens and their parents in the area of driving:

One or more of these links will help in making your teen feel better about driving. I highly recommend "not" doing the "online" driver education.  The class room setting is much more real and has a greater impact. 
 
The following are some of my favorite websites in covering teen driving: 
 
#1. http://healthworldeducation.org/safety_driveright.php?utm_source=HW+General&

mail&utm_term=0_d3c846556d-ade8099c4b-78534009 
 
#2.  From the California DMV - great information that will answer many of your 
questions:

Being 100% alert behind the wheel reduces your collision factor dramatically. Distracted driving, impaired and aggressive driving that kills us.  In regards to speed - the faster we go - we have less control, and less likely to avoid a collision.

Thank you!
