Teaching teens the proper way to drive is more than simply telling them how to check their mirrors and follow the speed limits posted. Teaching a teen the proper way to drive includes teaching them that there are certain things they are required to do when and if a situation arises.
For example, you should teach a teen what to do should their car ever break down on the side of the road. The first step would be for them to pull as far off the road as possible and to turn on their flashing lights. They should also exit the vehicle and move as far off the road as possible to prevent injury should another car accidentally hit theirs on the side of the road. They should also call their parents to ask them to handle the situation.
Additionally, teen drivers need to know that it is okay if they are uncomfortable pulling over for a police officer on a deserted, unlit road at night. They need to know to call the police and ask for the operator to confirm that a real police officer is in fact trying to pull him over before he pulls over. Or he can wait until he finds a well lit, busy area to pull over for safety measures.
