[1] **Advice for parents:

  • Know what your children are doing and where they are – and how they are traveling to and from their destinations
  • Talk with them about the consequences of their actions and the trouble they can get into
  • Stress responsibility and the dangers to road safety
  • Discuss with your children the need to avoid peer pressure and to avoid climbing in vehicles with underage and intoxicated drivers
  • Put keys where underage children cannot get to them
  • The most important advice would be to teach responsibility by way of example. If parents drive with caution and obey the laws of the road – their children will also have more respect for traffic laws and for those who travel our roads!
