TxDOT re-introducing 'Five for Drive' campaign to keep young drivers safe

Law enforcement, safety groups remind teens to stay safe behind the wheel

"We hope parents will start the conversation about safe driving during National Teen Driver Safety Week - but then continue the conversations - every day throughout the year - to help keep their teens safe behind the wheel", added Buskohl.

According to AAA, The Ohio Parent Teachers Association (PTA), Impact Teen Drivers, Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police, Ohio Health, the Ohio Public Health Association, Nationwide Insurance, State Farm Insurance, Property Casualty Insurers Association of America, InAlign Partners, DRVN and others have also expressed support of this bill.

The Nebraska Safety Council is encouraging parents to talk to their teen drivers about safe driving and to be a model of good driving behavior. NHTSA gives parents tips on how to talk about safe driving behaviors with their teens and to address the most risky and deadly driving behaviors for teen drivers: alcohol, lack of seat belt use, distracted and drowsy driving, speeding, and driving with passengers. He says those two create a recipe for a traffic accident. A key part of the instruction focuses on training newly licensed drivers to make better driving decisions. Show you take driving seriously. There is no such thing as having too many conversations about the dangers of distracted and impaired driving - as well as practicing what is being preached. In the last five years, there has been a total of 89,029 teen driver crashes in Alabama with almost 200 teen driver deaths and more than 11,500 injuries. These tasks that seem ordinary to a well-seasoned driver but can be threatening to a teen driver who may not have been taught how to handle these situations from driver's education or parents. The survey found that above all, teen drivers want to use technology, but first need to be educated on its benefits while on the road.

While addressing the event, Nitish Kumar demanded that the Patna University should be given the status of a Central University. Later, speaking at the centenary celebrations of Patna University, the prime minister showered praise on the chief minister.

Auto crashes remain the number one killer of teens, but over the past decade tremendous advancements in safety and education have resulted in a drop in deaths involving teen drivers. In 2015, 531 passengers died in a vehicle, truck, or SUV driven by a teen driver, and 58 percent of those passengers were NOT buckled up at the time of the fatal crash. The theme for the week is: "The Haunting Reality of Teen Driving". An estimated 99,000 teen passenger vehicle drivers were injured in motor vehicle traffic crashes.

The program increases the amount of time teens are required to spend in gaining experience behind the wheel under the supervision of a parent or guardian.

Improved safe-driving behaviors are particularly critical for America's youngest drivers. However, with all of these activities, teens tend to compromise something very important: sleep.
