Like genies let out of their lamps, most teen drivers are eager to exercise their new powers, but the story doesn’t always have a fairy-tale ending. Of all drivers, teens are the most likely to crash a car; for people ages 15 to 20, motor vehicle injuries are the leading cause of death. To help make teen safety more than just wishful thinking, AAA offers an auto insurance discount for new drivers who complete the TeenSmart interactive driver safety program, and a teen-parent contract available for download at AAA.com/teensdrive.
Make sure your young driver has the proper insurance. From July 1 to August 31, get a quote at any AAA branch office and receive a free gift. For more info, visit AAA.com/offices.
