Safety

Teen/Parent Driving Contract

Crashes are preventable. Teens who say their parents set rules and pay attention to their activities in a helpful, supportive way are half as likely to crash.1

A simple and effective way to open the lines of communication about safe driving practices with your teen is with a Teen/Parent Driving Contract. A contract allows parents and teens to work together to establish driving rules and consequences. Contracts cover a range of driving safety issues, such as passenger restrictions, seat belts, traffic laws, and more.
