Toledo, OH (PRWEB) May 13, 2013

Summer begins in just a few weeks so teens with have more free time, meaning they will be driving to and from friend’s houses, the beach, Cedar Point, and other recreational activities. With more time to spend doing extracurricular activities, teenagers are likely to be on the roadways much more. Another concern is nighttime driving for teens. Without school in the morning, they may be able to stay up later than usual, resulting in drives home in the dark.

Attorney Charles Boyk would like to remind parents to stress the importance of safe driving to their teens. As reported by Franklin County Safe Communities, a teenager’s inexperience driving and immaturity combined with certain behaviors contributes to teen-related crashes. To attempt to reduce your teen’s chances of being involved in a car accident, Attorney Boyk would like parents to share the Department of Motor Vehicle’s safety tips with their children.
