Latina Mom Bloggers & State Farm Promote Safe Driving for Teens

 This is part of a campaign with State Farm.  However, all opinions are our own.

We strap them into car seats, keep them in booster seats for as long as possible, make them only ride in the back seat and then all of a sudden they’re in the driver’s seat.  At Latina Mom Bloggers, we’re always concerned about the safety of our children no matter their age.  That’s why we’ve partnered with State Farm to share a series of posts on the findings of their recent survey and the  importance of supporting teen drivers.

A survey of teens and their parents conduced by State Farm found an alarming gap between parents’ and teens’ views towards graduated driver licensing (GDL) laws.  When asked if their teens followed passenger restriction laws, 70% of parents said they almost always do.  But only 43% of teens responded similarly.  And only 51% of teens listed safety as the most important reason to follow GDL laws compared to 89% of parents.   Read more of the findings in the infographic below.

With car accidents being the number one killer of teens in North America, it’s important that all teen drivers follow the laws and parents reinforce them.   Understanding the importance of keeping our kids safe, State Farm developed the Celebrate My Drive initiative.  Celebrate My Drive allows communities to rally around young drivers and encourages them to make smart choices each and every time they get behind the wheel.

Celebrate My Drive promotes a  lifetime commitment to safe driving.  A commitment that we all can make!
