Before you as a parent hand over the keys to a newly licensed teen, make sure you both know the rules.
Deborah Bouldin, Manager of Triple-A's retail store in Fredericksburg says their new teen driving safety website offers a fun way to learn the rules of the road in Virginia. Keys to Drive is part of the program at teendriving.aaa.com. The site offers a way for teens and parents to partner together and covers everything from distracted and night driving to driving contracts.
She says if you don't help you kid learn, their friends will. Car crashes are the leading cause of death among teens, outpacing alcohol and drugs.
