Helping rookie teen drivers

Original post made by jill, another community, on Jun 18, 2007

I saw this post at WearyParent.com about keeping new teen drivers safe and thought it was interesting. The idea is to identify "learners" so other drivers will be aware of them more.


Rookie Driver - Keeping New Drivers Safe
by Char on June 12th, 2007

One of the best ways to help keep new teen drivers safe is by giving them a way to be identified as new drivers by others on the road. It has been a long standing tradition in Europe to identify cars being driven by "Learners" with a very easy to identify "L" sticker. By alerting other drivers on the road of the new drivers, experienced drivers can give them more room, be more cautious and a little more understanding when minor courtesy mistakes are made.

Rookie Driver is bringing the awareness to the US, using a fun, teen accepted, car magnet that says Rookie Driver. Afterall, being "Rookie of the Year" is cool in sports, and to teens Rookie Driver is more acceptable than Student Driver or other terms.

The Rookie Driver web site also includes an entire page of teen driving safety links. Definitely worth a look if you have a rookie driver or one who is soon to be.
