Teen Traffic Safety Is A Year-Long Pursuit

Teen Traffic Safety Is A Year-Long Pursuit | Wiygul Automotive Clinic

safety 02-12-18 Share:

As the month of May and National Youth Traffic Safety Month comes to a close, it’s important to remember that teen driving safety should be a focus all year long. There are a number of resources online for parents and teens that provide a wide range of information that will help teens stay safe and teach them to be responsible drivers. These resources provide important guidance on car maintenance and repair, road side safety, safe driving behaviors and the positive role parents can play.

Wiygul Automotive Clinic has a lot of information on our website that can be helpful to teens and parents as you discuss driving safety.  Visit our Resource Center as a first stop for articles and tips that may help prevent car repair issues your teen could have while on the road and to help prepare your teen for any emergency that could occur. Regular maintenance checks and paying attention to the most basic car maintenance items – checking oil, proper tire inflation, filters and hoses – can help keep your teen from breaking down on the roads.

We’ve covered a lot the bases on our website but there are other resources that we thought could also be helpful to our customers as they navigate these concerns with teens.

Teen Driver Car Maintenance and Repair Guide published by AutoMD.com is a good resource for parents and teens that covers some basic do-it-yourself (DIY) maintenance guides, road-side safety tips, and more.

Impact Teen Drivers educates  teens and parents about the dangers of reckless and distracted driving.

National Organizations for Youth Safety also has a number of online articles related to teen traffic safety, as well as a toolkit for parents and youth to engage their communities in traffic safety education projects.

As the only state in the nation that requires a formal ceremony for teens and their parents in front of a judge before providing a driver’s license to the newly minted driver, Virginia takes teen driving safety seriously. We all have an opportunity to teach our kids how to be safe and responsible drivers, how their actions on the road impact others, and how to take care of their cars so that they don’t endanger themselves or others. Most importantly, we can all model this good behavior. Let’s have a safe summer and a safe year!
