This week, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reminds us all about our role as parents, guardians and mentors of our teenage drivers. Tragically, according to the NHTSA, motor vehicle crashes are the leading causes of death for 14-18 year olds in the United States. The NHTSA has published a helpful “5 to Drive” set of rules to go over with our kids: no cell phones; no extra passengers; no speeding; no alcohol; wear your seatbelt. While these rules may seem so basic, they are time-tested and need to be repeated to our children.
