Previously, we have talked about several ways that a parent can reduce the risk of teenage DUIs and car accidents during prom night, one of the most important nights for high school students. Another way is to make your teen driver personally feel responsible for avoiding auto accidents during prom night.
Mothers Against Drunk Driving has published a small pamphlet that gives teenage drivers ideas on what they can do to have “safe proms” that do not involve alcohol. This gives teenagers a sense of purpose, that they are doing something for themselves, rather than having their parents tell them what to do or not. Of course, what they want to do will have to be regulated or watched over by the parents, but exceptions occur all the time in life.
Our car accident lawyers believe that more needs to be done to reach out to teenagers to get the message across to them. We are happy to see that MADD has reached out to teenagers in an attempt to help them better understand the dangers of driving under the influence (DUI).
