Syracuse parents typically think that once they teach their teens how to drive, they no longer have any influence on the teen’s driving habits.
Good driving habits in Syracuse can begin with teens observing their parents practicing good driving habits. If you are a parent who is going to teach your 16 year old to drive, here are some tips to help make this “rite of passage” easier on you and your teen:
Parents should always teach defensive driving skills, or driving habits meant to avoid accidents. Examples of defensive driving habits include obeying speed limits, using turn signals, not tailgating, and stopping completely at stop signs. Another important aspect of good driving habits parents often forget to tell their kids about is vehicle maintenance. Parents should tell their teens that driving a car with bad brakes and bald tires is not only dangerous, but can cause serious car crashes.
