Safe Family: Teen driver safety

By  | 

Our Safe Family report on National Teen Driver Safety week continues with How parents can help decrease traffic accidents involving young drivers, as well as what officers suggest when it comes to those drivers behind the wheel.

Currently, each state has Graduated Driver Licensing Laws. These laws determine what age a teen may begin driving, what hours they're allowed to be behind the wheel, cell phone restrictions, and how many passengers may be with them. It also gives information on how long the teen must be supervised before they're allowed to drive alone.

Most states include three stages:
Learner Stage
Intermediate Stage
Full Privilege Stage
