Important Driving Information For Port Washington Area Teens

Here’s what your teen driver needs to know:

Have The Right Driving Attitude

Several teen accidents occur due to attitude and maturity. Make a commitment to yourself, your family, your passengers, and other drivers to practice a responsible attitude about driving.

Practice

Practice supervised driving as often as you can, and keep it up until you take your driver’s test.

Always Buckle Up

Wear your seatbelt every time you drive or ride.

Underage Drinking and Drug Use Is Illegal

No matter if it’s one drink or one hit, your brain is already suffering from the chemical effects that can impair your judgement and reaction time. Driving under the influence can cost you your license or your life.

Limit Your Passengers

When you’re a new driver, you should limit your number of passengers to reduce the risk of a fatal crash.

Limit Your Night Driving

Avoid nighttime driving until you’re comfortable to reduce the risk of a fatal crash.

Slow And Steady

Avoid high-volume traffic and high speeds until you’re comfortable. You can always introduce highway driving, merging, and city driving later on.

Be Prepared For Poor Weather Conditions

It’s best to stay off the road during bad weather. Get as much supervised practice driving during rain or other bad weather conditions as you can, then try it on your own.

Cell Phones Are For Emergencies Only

Don’t develop the habit of talking on your cell phone while driving. Use your cell phone for emergencies only. If you have to talk on the phone, pull over to the side of the road.

Drive A Safe Vehicle

If you’re thinking of getting your own car, look for one with high safety ratings. Be sure to check out federal statistics and consumer report literature to find the car or truck that meets your safety requirements. You’ll find Honda vehicles are among the safest out there.

With these helpful tips, you can have peace of mind knowing your teen is driving safely. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us at our Port Washington area Honda dealer today.
