Each year, more than 100 young people die on Washington roadways. Teen Driver Safety Week, October 21 – 27, aims to help reduce those numbers while raising awareness about teen driving nationwide.
It’s a great opportunity for parents to focus on helping their teens learn how to become better drivers.
DOL’s social media will be sharing information about distracted driving, seat belt use, underage drinking, driving under the influence of marijuana, rules for the road, and more.
You can also learn more about teen driver safety on this fact sheet. The sheet includes steps parents can take to help teens become better drivers.
The state’s Target Zero campaign also has this helpful info graphic for parents, too.
