Teen Drinking & Driving

Teen Driving Safety

Don’t Drink & Ride

Every parent is aware that teenagers engage in risk-taking behaviors more than any other age group of people. Teenagers are the ones who think it is a good idea to jump off the roof for fun, and do other meaningless dangerous activities for kicks. However, one behavior that is no laughing matter and that can have life-altering consequences is drinking and driving.

Drinking and driving is basically the dumbest thing any teen, or any individual for that matter, can get involved with. Teen drivers already have little skill and experience behind the wheel, but when you combine that with alcohol the result is more than dangerous. Teen drinking and driving is comparable to playing Russian Roulette with two bullets in the gun. Although there is no way to completely stop teens from engaging and enjoying risk taking behaviors, parents need to not budge on the importance of consistently speaking with their teen about drinking and driving and how stupid it is. Parents need to plant a voice of caution and reason in their teen’s head that they should think twice, three times or four times before even considering getting behind the wheel after they have indulged in some brewskies.

Many parents are now turning to teen GPS tracking devices to help them determine where teenagers are going and how they might be behaving.

Parent Options

Parents have more tools available to them today than ever before to monitor and observe teen driving habits. One of the most popular tools are GPS tracking system devices that allow any concerned parent the ability to access speeds a teen is driving and more live through real-time tracking technology.

In conclusion, all teens must know that drinking in driving equates to tragic consequences. If you drink and drive it is only a matter of time before you get a DUI or get involved in a automobile accident that could take you or someone else’s life.
