Setting out on the open road is quite liberating for experienced drivers. For teens, however, it can be more than a bit nerve-racking. This is why it’s so important that you take the time to thoroughly teach your teen about the many safe driving tips they should follow. Here’s a quick look at some tips your teen can follow to become a safer driver in Arlington, TX.
First of all, teach your teen that even though they may pay taxes for road work, they technically do not own the road. So instead of driving as if everyone else will get out of your teen’s way, they must learn that it takes an effort from all drivers to keep the roads safe. This involves being courteous to one another, even when another driver makes a mistake. After all, everyone makes mistakes when driving at one point or another.
It should also be pointed out that the position of the driver’s seat as well as the headrest play a major role in how comfortable the teen is behind the wheel. This means your teen should adjust the seat each time he’s behind the wheel of a car to ensure he feels as comfortable as possible. And by comfortable, we mean that he can see clearly over the steering wheel and that his chest is not too close to the steering wheel, preferably at least 10 inches away.
