LibertyMutualKidsNTripsTwitterPartyThe new school year is about to start. And with that comes new teen drivers. We know because we live next to a high school. We’re all to familiar with a variety of teen driving issues from speeding, to kids walking down the middle of streets where other students are driving through them – maybe paying attention, maybe not. However I had no clue about the statistics regarding overconfident youth and their driving behaviors. Liberty Mutual Insurance and SADD partnered for a new study out that reveals the attitudes and behaviors of teen drivers. And you might be surprised. We’ll be talking about all sorts of teen driving and parenting tips this Thursday for our KidsNTrips Twitter Party sponsored by Liberty Mutual. Please join us!

Prizes! We will be giving away Four $100 Visa gift cards awarded to four #KidsNTrips participants. See details below.

How Parents Can Encourage Save Driving Behavior with Teens

  • Keep practicing: Nearly 40 percent of teens say their parents stop practicing driving with them after they get their license. Teaching shouldn’t stop when teens leave the DMV with a license in hand. Parents should continue to drive with their teens and remind them of safe driving behaviors with frequent check-ins and conversations.
  • Hold each other accountable: Mom, dad and teens can all be held accountable and parents can set a good example with today’s new monitoring technology like Liberty Mutual’s HighwayHero app. The app tracks and scores driving behavior based on factors including phone usage while driving, acceleration, hard braking and speeding and even rewards drivers with a discount on auto insurance in select states.
  • Reward safe driving: Parents can consider regularly rewarding their teen for safe driving. Rather than focusing on the consequences of bad driving behavior, a reward like a break from a specific chore or a $10 gift card, could be an effective way to remind teens to think about their actions while driving.
  • Set expectations: Liberty Mutual Insurance and SADD encourage parents and teens to use the Teen Driving Contract  as a conversation starter and discussion guide. This tool covers important safety issues and is an easy roadmap for parents and teens alike to uphold family driving rules.
