Promoting Parent Involvement in Teen Driving: An In-Depth Look at the Importance and the Initiatives

Promoting Parent Involvement in Teen Driving: An In-Depth Look at the Importance and the Initiatives

This publication examines the critical role parents play in helping their teens survive their driving years, looking at how parents can support – or supplement – state graduated driver licensing (GDL) laws to help their teens develop into good, safe drivers. The report also examines current best practices in reaching parents and identifies what elements are essential for states wanting to build a good parent program.

This is the the third in a series of State Farm®-funded teen driving publications. The report was written by Pam Fischer, a transportation safety consultant and former New Jersey State Highway Safety Office Director, who also happens to be the parent of a teen driver.
