Within the past week, we've seen a startling number of deadly car crashes involving young drivers. From Ohio to Texas, the pain of losing a teenager has left many parents and communities heartbroken. With so many distractions behind the wheel--texting, rowdy passengers, loud music-- how can parents ensure their teenaged drivers will return safely?
One Las Vegas dad was haunted by that question. In order to ensure his teen son was making smart decisions as a new driver, Aaron Smith launched the "How's Our Driving" program. With the help of a bumper sticker and a 1-800 number, parents like Smith are able to rest a little easier when their teen hits the road. Natasha Curry talked to the dad and son team to learn more about the initiative.
Also, the program has a list of basic ground rules that each teen must pledge to keep-- including obeying traffic laws, checking emotions at the curb and no reckless driving. To learn more about the program, check out the How's Our Teen Driving website.
