The riskiest thing a teenager will most likely do is get behind the wheel after they pass their test (let alone be driven by their peers):

1 in 5 young drivers crash in their first year of driving (post-passing their test).

Thousands of 16-24 year olds are killed or injured on UK roads every year.

95% of crashes are contributed to by attitude & behaviour, not vehicle handling skills.  

The frontal lobe of a young persons brain doesn’t fully develop until their early to mid twenties (Basically the bit responsible for: danger anticipation, risk assessment, eye scanning & impulse).

So what can you do to make sure your children are properly prepared for life on the road?
