May is Youth Traffic Safety Month and Bailey Brothers Collision Repair joins organizations across the country to focus on the prevention of vehicle crashes, the No. 1 cause of death for teens. Over the next three weeks we'll share some ideas that we, as adults, can do to better prepare teen drivers in our family to be safe on the roads.
"Our teens have been watching and learning from us since they were babies, so there’s no reason to think that they stop watching and learning from us once they get their license. It is essential that we model good driving behavior and follow the rules of the road. Instructing them to drive properly and then not following those rules ourselves is hypocritical.
It’s also true that nobody’s perfect and we all makes mistakes from time to time. We shouldn’t be surprised if our teens feel the need to correct us when they see bad driving habits behind the wheel. Teaching our teens to drive can make us all better drivers." (http://driveithome.org/parents-are-the-key/set-good-example)
To begin, we thought it would be interesting to see what teens think of our driving. These teens describe what their parents do behind the wheel - maybe you'll recognize yourself in some of these comments.
