The safest way to drive is to drive defensively—to watch out for potentially risky events. Occasionally, drivers get in situations that require a sudden stop, which means slamming on the brakes. During these times, it is easier to lose control and harder to maneuver the car to avoid a crash.
DriveitHOME™ is an initiative of the National Safety Council, designed by and for parents of newly licensed teen drivers. DriveitHOME™ offers free resources parents can use to help their teen build experience to become safer drivers.
