With the beginning of the school year, more teenagers will be getting behind the wheel of a vehicle to get back and forth to school and other activities. You have spent years protecting your children from all sorts of dangers on the road and off, and now you must face the fact that your teens are starting to drive on their own. One of the first steps of preparation is to make sure that all recommended car service has been performed according to schedule on the vehicle your teen will be driving. Due to inexperience, your teen may not recognize the signs indicating a pending car repair issue.

5 Rules Specially For Your Teens to Keep in Mind While Driving:- 

Surveys show that teens whose parents impose driving restrictions typically engage in less risky driving and are involved in fewer crashes. Don't just hand over the keys to a two-ton machine with no rules. Consider these five rules that your teenager should agree to before getting behind the wheel:

Rule #1: No Cell Phones - No matter how experienced a driver is, talking on a cell phone while driving reduces your reaction time similar to that of a 70-year-old. Texting involves manual, visual, and cognitive distraction and is among the worst of all driver distractions.

Rule #2: No Extra Passengers -- In a study analyzed by NHTSA, compared to when driving alone, teen drivers were two-and-a-half times more likely to engage in one or more potentially risky behaviors when driving with a teenage peer. Research shows that the risk of a fatal crash goes up in direct relation to the number of teenagers in the car.

Rule #3: No Speeding -- Speeding plays a large role involving teen drivers in fatal crashes. Talk to your teen about the dangers of speeding and staying in control of the vehicle. Remind them to always follow the posted limit and of the potential consequences of speeding.

Rule #4: No Alcohol – Drivers 15-20 years old are at far greater risk of death in crashes involving alcohol than adults. In the event of an accident, your teen will have to face the consequences of breaking the law--if they are lucky enough to survive. It could mean a trip to jail, the loss of a driver's license, and dozens of other expenses such as attorney fees, court costs, other fines, and insurance consequences. It could also mean losing academic eligibility, college acceptance, and scholarship awards.

Rule #5: Always Buckle Up -- Remind your teenagers that whether they are driving across town or just around the neighborhood, wearing seat belts is the absolute best way to protect themselves and their passengers. Seat belts help drivers maintain control of the vehicle in emergency situations.

Tips to Remember: Talking is important, but action is even better. Start by modeling good habits, such as turning off your cell phone and buckling up, any time you drive them anywhere.

Don't let your teen become a statistic. Make sure all required car repair is taken care of and all recommended car service is up-to-date.
