13 Driver Distraction Game

14 Passenger Safety  Your behavior as a passenger affects your safety and the safety of others in the car.  By being a responsible passenger, you are building your parents’ confidence and trust in you.

15 Passenger Safety  You will need to be mature and trustworthy to one day get your driver’s permit and this is the first step!

16 Key Passenger Rules  Always wear a seatbelt. The easiest way to protect yourself in a crash. Reduces the risk of serious injury or dying in a car crash by almost half.

17 Key Passenger Rules  Never distract the driver. Driver distraction is a top reason for crashes. It’s not just cell phones – passenger behavior can also be very distracting to the driver.

18 Key Passenger Rules  Never ride with a driver who has been drinking or taking drugs. Using alcohol and other drugs changes the way drivers make decisions and respond to emergencies.

19 Key Passenger Rules  Never ride with drivers who have too little experience. A driver must have their license for at least six months before you should accept a ride. Most teen crashes are the result of “rookie” mistakes. Teens need time to practice to gain driving experience.

20 Key Passenger Rules  Just avoid drivers you know are unsafe. The risk of dying in a crash – as a passenger – rises in the teen years. Making smart choices when your parents are not around shows you’re responsible.

21 What Would You Say?
