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& utm_campaign=ade8099c4b-DR_Stat_16%25_of+Crashes+are+FATAL9_16_2014&utm_medium=e mail&utm_term=0_d3c846556d-ade8099c4b-78534009 #2. From the California DMV - great information that will answer many of your questions: http://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/dmv/detail/pubs/dl603/teen_htm/gettingstarted/!ut/p /a1/nZDBTsMwEES_hUOO1prYcenRgiqBtOKA1Dq-RCY2iaFx0naJEF-PU4kLUoVgT7srzWjegAYFOpjJ twb9EMx-vrWoy_u71XWR0zLP1pLKsiget6ttmi8Z7ECDbgKO2EFl-6luhoAuYO1CQuOd0PH9-RTXvaAs oehcqDvsE9o6RB_aE5ojOju7jI23UDnWpNYxRpy1gnDOGTHGCLJsRMb5Ij4zDhVUenExVibg6Y-GD79x KqjS4-Z200Zbgx3x4WUANbOBOrOB-mYD9YMtav3r4aBlbGpu5wOj5v9VnSuPaemFkRTGvr9h2Th9rqXb kberL-B4uIU!/dl5/d5/L2dBISEvZ0FBIS9nQSEh/?urile=wcm%3Apath%3A%2Fdmv_content_en%2 Fdmv%2Fpubs%2Fdl603%2Fteen_htm%2Fgettingstarted #3. http://www.nsc.org/safety_road/TeenDriving/Pages/teen_driving.aspx #4.

More stats: http://www.speakuporelse.org/?page_id=13 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. If you're are interested in a safe driving talk - please go to my contact section on this website.
