Sue Scheff: Alive at 25 Parent Program for Teen Drivers

Driving crashes account for up to 44 percent of all teen deaths and are the leading cause of teenage deaths in the United States, according to recent studies by the National Safety Council.

For more than 50 years, Midas has built peace of mind by offering automotive expertise, value, responsiveness, and safety information to help keep you safely on the road. Today, they are pleased to provide the National Safety Council's Alive at 25 Parent Program online course to parents who have new teen drivers at home.

This interactive program typically costs $25, but is being provided by Midas free of charge (while supplies last). We're hoping to get parents involved in training their teens to become safe, responsible and defensive drivers.

Driving is a privilege. A driver's license gives you a certain level of freedom, but it also gives you an enormous amount of responsibility.

With almost all teens having cell phones today, it is critical we talk about the dangers of texting and driving as well as talking and driving. This is all distracted driving that can cause serious accidents and end lives.

Wearing your seatbelt is the law. It not only could potentially save your life, you will get a ticket if you don't click it! In Florida learn more about our Click It or Ticket program.
