Teen Driver Safety Awareness!

Please allow me to share with you something that is very important to me this month on our Ask The Experts Page.

October 21 – 27, 2018 is designated as the next National Teen Driver Safety Week. We would encourage you to share the following message with your family, friends and associates:

From the Philadelphia Children’s Hospital:
“Many people, including teens, think the best way to reach young adults is to ‘scare them straight.’ This rarely works. It can be overwhelming and cause teens to shut down. Research shows that teens understand they are vulnerable and are well aware of many risks. So, focusing on positive actions teens can take to be safe and to keep their friends safe can be powerful messages for teens. In fact, the best way to change behavior over time is messaging that promotes positive action.”

I implore you to take time this month and share a message of hope to teenagers within your community to drive safely.

Thank you,
Ben Langley
