Getting a driver’s license in your teens is a milestone and you get the freedom of taking a ride to the open road without adults. It is of course an exciting time and also such time that can change the family dynamic.
The licences are issued between the ages of 16 and 18, depending on the region where one lives.
Meanwhile, parents have mixed feelings and some take it positively as they now have one more hand with driver license at home while some are weary about inexperienced children behind the wheel.
Such fears are usually expected as the leading cause of death for teenagers is vehicular fatalities. In the United States a data released from Allstate reveals teens are thrice more likely to crash per mile driven compared to adult drivers.
Below are some tips to follow for teen drivers:

Keep phone away

Don’t rush to destination. Leave your place a bit ahead of time so that you don’t need to rush on the road and indulge rash driving.
Don’t get distracted
Usually teen drivers get distracted with the radio or by other passengers. Try to keep noises of music system or voices of co-passengers to the minimum. Even co-passengers should talk the least when a teenager is driving the vehicle.
Park at easy parking lane
