Health Tip: Teach Teens to Drive Defensively

Keep them focused on the road
(HealthDay News) -- Being a safe driver means learning to watch for potential road hazards.
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. Don't speed.
