How schools can keep teen drivers safe

High school can have such an influence on a young person’s life. School tends to shape a teen’s social compass and it may affect how they will be as adults. After all, everyone remembers their high school years; whether they are fond memories or recollections of despair.

Because of this, high school educators can have an influence on how teen drivers follow safe driving practices. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), teachers and administrators can work together to promote safe driving even at school. This post will highlight a few things that can be done.

Take part in pledge drives -   One way to drive influence is to sponsor and promote a pledge drive. By getting students to sign a promise that they will not use their cell phones while driving, a sense of community around safe driving practices can be developed. If teens know that their friends are practicing safe driving habits, chances are that they will too.

Spread the word – Teens are more likely to take part in a pledge drive and subsequent safe driving promises if they know about them. With that said, prominently posting messages about the benefits of safe driving practices around the school can be helpful in reinforcing the messages that teens need to hear.

Get parents involved – Aside from educators, parents can be a huge influence on how teens conduct themselves. So making sure that parents are on board with what schools are trying to promote can be an important factor in keeping teen drivers safe.
