Summer is here! A season for barbecues, blockbusters, swimming, sunscreen and young love. But summer brings something else, too: School’s out, and that means more teens behind the wheel than any other time of year.
Did you know that the 100 days that fall between Memorial Day and Labor Day are the deadliest for young drivers on our roads? Teenagers are driving more often, with more friends, taking unfamiliar roads, heading to the beach or another recreational spot.
It’s part of our job to educate drivers young and old, and keep everyone on our roads safe. So this Friday, the DMV will be hosting a Facebook chat for parents and their teens to talk about safe driving practices.
We’ll address topics such as distracted driving, driving under the influence and parental roles and responsibilities. We’re happy to answer any questions about provisional driving restrictions or any other topics related to young drivers during the discussion.
All parents and teens driving in California are welcome to join the conversation. Details on how to participate are below.
