Safe driving Facebook chat with teens & parents on June 26

Teen-parent-FBchat.wtext

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.

June 26, 2015
11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

GUIDELINES

Please do not post any personal identifying information (phone number, address, driver license or identification card numbers, etc.),

Please do not post any profanity, racial or sexual comments or questions.

Depending on the amount of questions we receive, we may not be able to answer all of them, though we will try to answer as many as we can.

HOW TO POST A QUESTION TO DMV

LIKE the California DMV on Facebook (facebook.com/CADMV).

LOOK for the post that will kick off the conversation at 11 a.m. and add your questions/contributions as comments.

Shop Happily

Even if you’re too stuffed to move from your Thanksgiving meal, we know you can’t pass up those Black Friday specials.  As you wake up during the wee hours and head out to your favorite stores, DMV would like to remind you to drive carefully, be very patient, and pay particular attention to pedestrians.

Throughout your holiday shopping remain alert and mindful of your surroundings, have your keys in hand when approaching your vehicle, and check the back seat and around the car before getting in.  Do not leave shopping bags visible in your car windows.  Lock them in the trunk or, if possible, take them directly home.  These tips will help keep you and your family safe this shopping season.
