Teen Passengers: What Parents Need to Know
Crash risks are nearly double with one passenger and increase even more with each additional passenger. This is true for all teens, even those who are responsible and trustworthy.
Recommendation for Parents:
Initially, limit your teen to NO teen passengers, and
gradually increase passenger privileges as your teen gains more driving experience.
