3 Tips to Keep Your Teen Driving Safely This Labor Day, Charlotte, North Carolina

During the summer months, teenagers are more likely to drive around with their friends, stay out late, and even partake in underage drinking. As a result, accidents involving teenagers spike during this period, which includes Labor Day weekend. Below, a compassionate North Carolina auto accident lawyer from Nagle & Associates, PA shares a few tips for ensuring your teen’s safety when behind the wheel during the long weekend.

3 Tips for Keeping Your Driving Teen Safe Over Labor Day Weekend

1. Eliminate Distractions

Texting and driving is incredibly dangerous, and inexperienced teen drivers should never take their eyes off the road or their hands off the wheel. Fortunately, there are several ingenious apps that parents can install to ensure their children do not use their phones when they are driving.  

2. Monitor Their Speed

Remind your teen to follow the speed limit at all times, even if there is no traffic around. If you are still concerned about your teen’s driving habits after discussing the dangers of speeding, auto accident lawyers often suggest devices you can install in the vehicle to monitor it whenever it is in motion.  

3. Be Realistic About Underage Drinking

Underage drinking is a serious problem around the country. In a 2015 survey among high school students, approximately one out of every three respondents claimed they had consumed alcohol in the prior 30 days. Thus, even if you are certain your children do not drink, there is a good chance at least a few of their friends do. Remind your teenagers of the dangers of drinking and driving, and let them know that even though you will never condone it, you will always be just a phone call away if they ever need a ride.
