(1888PressRelease) Every minute, a teenager in North America is killed or critically injured in a car crash caused by a teen driver. More than 99% of those crashes result from driver error and are completely preventable. 3 Keys To Keeping Your Teen Alive provides parents with the tools they need to help them safeguard their teen drivers.
New York City, New York -- Morgan James Publishing (www.Morgan-James.com) releases 3 Keys To Keeping Your Teen Alive: Lessons for Surviving the First Year of Driving.
Every year, 4 million new teen drivers get behind the wheel. They can't wait for summer to show off their driving skills by heading to the beach or cruising with friends. But those long days of sunshine between May and August include 8 of the 10 deadliest days for young drivers. Teens are most at-risk because they have the least experience. Drivers Ed and other driving courses provide less than 10 of the 100 hours of road practice new drivers need. Now there's a new program to help parents provide that extra 90+ hours of quality practice teens need to drive defensively.
In 3 Keys To Keeping Your Teen Alive, Anne Marie Hayes has developed a 2-part program that guides drivers and coaches through 25 fundamental and advanced in-car practice lessons.
Part 1 - The workbook outlines each lesson and provides tips, tools and checklists for the parent/coach. The workbook also has true stories with quizzes and crash analyses to promote discussions between parents and teens about the skills, responsibilities and risks of driving.
Part 2 - The companion website (http://TeensLearnToDrive.com ) provides great instructional videos that complement the lessons and appeal to tech-savvy teens.
The three key elements that shape the program - Actively Involved Parents, Need-to-Know Info, and Structured Practice - help teen drivers and parents through every stage of Graduated Driver Licensing. Hayes uses current information from driving instructors, police officers, traffic safety advocates, government organizations and health professionals to educate families about issues like distractions, cell phones, impaired and drowsy driving. There's also basic vehicle maintenance information including how to check the fluids in a car, maintain the tires, and recognize danger signs that a car may be unsafe.
3 Keys To Keeping Your Teen Alive also includes first-hand accounts from more experienced teens warning new drivers about the dangers of bad driving habits. These accounts are brutally honest in their stories of tragedy and show new drivers the importance of being safe and not taking chances that could change their lives and the lives of others forever. The lessons, plans, and resources, both online and in 3 Keys To Keeping Your Teen Alive, are key to keeping parents informed and teen drivers safe. 3 Keys To Keeping Your Teen Alive has the vital tools parents and drivers need to keep their teens alive.
