Have a teen of driving age? We just hit this milestone back in May and now ready to consider driver's training. The biggest concern for driving these days are those who text and drive, etc. How can you be alert yet safe at the same time? There is such a thing as defensive yet safe driving that will not only help you, but your new teen driver as well.

Your teen may be a little apprehensive of their new driving skills at first, but the more practice they get, the better they are and can learn appropriate defensive driving.

Here are some helpful tips to remember when heading out on the open roadways. Keep in mind, these tips are very helpful to teach your teen right away while they are still carrying their driver's permit and reaching a certain amount of driving hours.

·         It should go without saying, but never drive with a cell phone in hand.

·         Pay attention to all traffic signs.

·         Never tailgate another vehicle. Keep a safe distance behind.

·         Learn how to effectively drive in all weather conditions.

·         Give other drivers the right of way.

Driving defensively ensures that the driver is in complete control while behind the wheel. Always be prepared and avoid accidents!
