Survive the 5


So how do you survive?

  • Practice, practice and practice some more.
  • Drive with your parent or another adult in different driving situations: at night, in different weather conditions, and on major highways, which are different than driving around town.
  • Give the road your full attention, limit distractions. No cell phone, no drinking or eating, no loud music or “channel surfing”, and limit the number of passengers.
  • Slow down; give yourself (and others) a chance and some “space”.
  • Always wear a seat belt and make sure all your passengers do so as well. Don’t start the car unless they do!
  • Never drink and drive or use illegal drugs!  It’s a no-brainer. Don’t get in a car with someone who has. Remember many prescription and over-the-counter medications can make you drowsy…don’t drive when taking them.
  • Enroll in a Defensive Driving Class .
