The week of Thanksgiving is the busiest traveling week of the year. The winter holiday season being the next in line. Many parents are concerned for their teens safety while driving during these times due to inexperience. They should be worried! During these holiday months you will have much more traffic on the road making for less reaction time in high risk situations. You have more people rushing and driving carelessly. You will also have an increase in people who are driving under the influence.
This sounds pretty scary right? It doesn’t have to be! At Blue Bell Driving School we can take your teen on our defensive driving lessons. We will discuss with them about the importance of not only making their own driving choices, but also on how to be aware of the consequences from other drivers’ careless driving. We will take them behind the wheel to practice with them good defensive driving techniques with careless drivers and how to be more aware of their surroundings.
