You and driving

Why should parents not let you drive with your friends in the car? Picking them up and driving wherever you want to go is the funnest part! Finally you don’t need to be dropped off everywhere anymore.  No more waiting on a parent or adult for a ride!

Well…because they care about you!

Take a look at this statistic:

That huge red bar means if you are 16 or 17 years-old and you have 3 or more people in the car with you, the risk of a crash goes way up!

Do you think its fair for parents to ask you not to have friends in the car?  Is this something you’ve talked about with your parent?  Have you ever thought about making a safety agreement?  Let us know!
