It's National Teen Driver Safety Week, an opportunity to draw attention to teen driver safety and some of the challenges novice drivers face when behind the wheel. Automobile crashes are the leading cause of death for teenagers, killing more teens than homicide, suicide, and drug use COMBINED. What can parents of teen drivers, and teen drivers themselves, do to make sure that they are being as safe as possible while driving? This interview with Dr. Bill Van Tassel, AAA manager of Driver Training Programs explores the role of parents play in teen driver safety, the importance of driver training to the development of prepared and safe teen drivers, and a new tool from AAA, www.TeenDriving.AAA.com. Dr. Bill also talks about AAA's StartSmart and Dare to Prepare driver training programs.
