Teens and Summer Driving Safety

Summer may be halfway over, but teens still have free time to get behind the wheel of a car. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety compiled a list of key features on cars for teen drivers. According to the report teen drivers should start with a midsize or larger vehicle. Make sure it has electronic stability control. The agency says this is a life-saving technology that helps drivers keep control of a vehicle when they're coming around a curve, or they're on a slippery road. They say that even the safest of cars isn’t a substitute for reinforcing rules of the road. They also recommend that parents make sure there’s adult supervision at summer gatherings of young drivers.
