The Nemours Foundation offers these defensive-driving suggestions for teens:
Don't let your mind wander.
Don't become distracted, such as by talking on the phone or eating.
Make sure you are well-rested, and never drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Be aware of the other drivers around you, and make sure you're not driving too closely behind anyone.
