Research shows that parents can be the most important influence on a teen's
driving behaviors. Our firm frequently supports Missouri safety campaigns
and initiatives that target teens: they are, after all, one of the groups
most at risk for
auto accidents (distracted driving accidents in particular). If you're the parent
of a new driver, and you're looking for a helpful safety resource,
we recommend the AAA Foundation for Safety's website,
Keys2Drive, which provides useful information for both teen drivers and their parents.
Importantly, the website emphasizes the importance of being proactive
and starting a dialogue with teens, encouraging parents to build a strong
foundation by discussing defensive driving even before their children
are ready to get behind the wheel.
