Teens “Inherit” Bad Driving Habits from Parents

According to a study conducted by SADD, 60 % of High School Students say their parents have the biggest influence on their driving habits (see http://sadd.org/teenstoday/parentsdriving.htm)

Consider these findings:

  • 62 % say they talk or text on their cell phone while driving
  • 67% say they speed
  • 33 % say they do not wear seat belts
  • 24% think these behavior are safe

What kind of example do you set for your Teen Drivers?  As summer approaches, teen drivers will take to the road more frequently.  Have you established any ground rules with your teen drivers for summer driving?  Have you explained the new PA law that prohibits texting while driving?
