Parents are the key.
When it comes to keeping new teen drivers safe behind the wheel, the facts are clear. Parents who are actively involved in their child’s driver education significantly reduce crash rates of new teen drivers. And the most important thing we can do as parents is practice driving with our new drivers – as stressful as that can be sometimes!.
But how and what should we be practicing?
There’s an app for that.
State Farm Insurance has created a really great program called Steer Clear for new teen drivers and their parents. The coolest feature of this program is the Steer Clear app that they have developed for both iPhones and Android phones. It has 20 helpful practice drive scenarios, a timer to keep track of driving, and a number of other features. And the best part is that it’s free!
Here are a few screenshots.
If you end up using Steer Clear with your new driver, I’d love to know what you think about it!
