69% of NJ Parents Wish They Spent More Time Teaching Their Teen To Drive In High-Risk Situations

Research from The Allstate Foundation shows 48 percent of New Jersey parents express regret about not monitoring their teen driver after they get a license, and 69 percent of parents wish they spent more time practicing driving with their teen in high-risk situations. The study also revealed that parents are the No.1 source of information for teen drivers, yet 46 percent don’t know car crashes are the leading cause of death for teens

The majority of the “driver training” has been left to the parents or siblings, who may have gained the experience themselves, but have no practical method to transfer that experience to their teens. Oftentimes bad habits are perpetuated, the costs of damage to vehicles and other property are increasing, and unfortunately, teens are hurt or worse, killed. Most parents do not have access to a facility to safely run their teens through the right training programs.  The truth is, many parents have actually picked up some bad habits along the way that likely should not be taught to anyone!

Ensuring that your child knows how to safely control their vehicle is a lot of pressure and frankly, we as a society are falling short of our responsibilities to ourselves, our children and our communities.

Why wait until your teen is in a bad situation to figure out if they have the skills they need?

Drive Safer offers a behind the wheel defensive driving course and two other defensive driving course options that meets the criteria to deduct points from your license AND get you an insurance reduction.
