Students across Canada are gearing up for back-to-school. It’s a time of excitement, busier schedules and for many teens, that means driving to school. With more teens on the road this September, the concern for many parents of teen drivers is that their teen stays safe on the road.
Momstown wants new/experienced teen drivers and parents to gear up for the back-to-school with some tips for road safety.
As a parent of a new teen driver, the most important thing I can do is teach my child my rules of the road as well as teach her the responsibility of driving a car. For back-to-school, this means emphasizing school zones, neighborhoods with kids riding their bikes to school and knowing how to drive around school buses. Driver education is important in building her confidence to drive safely and share the road.
1. Always buckle up.
2. Obey the speed limit and school zones
3. Ignition on. Cell phone down.
For my teen driver, I always want to ensure that they know their car is their responsibility and maintenance also means safety for them and others on the road.
So here’s to a great, safe and happy back-to-school!
