With school starting back up, a lot of new drivers will be flooding the roads during rush hour throughout Norcross, Georgia. At U-Wrench-It, we have a few tips to keep the kids safe on the road including a quality towing package.
Is your teen aware of Georgia’s new hands-free driving law? If not, now is a great time to get them up to speed. It is against the law to hold your cell phone while driving. This new rule includes while drivers are at stoplights or stopped in traffic. Make sure your kids are up to speed on this law so they avoid costly tickets, points on their new license, or worse.
Get There Safely, Leave Early
A great way to ensure your teens get to school on time and in one piece is to have them leave early. When you’re running late, you are more likely to speed and drive erratically.
Leaving with plenty of time to spare means there’s no excuse for driving dangerously. Plus it’ll give your teen a little more time to warm up for a day of learning! A good rule of thumb is to leave at least ten minutes earlier than they need to.
Know the Rules
Your teen just passed their driving test so chances are they know the main rules of the road. However, if they’re driving to school, they’ll end up driving around buses a good amount of the time. Make sure they know the law when they encounter a school bus on the road.
Some of these rules include stopping when the bus is stopped on either side of the road, watching for students crossing, keeping your distance knowing the bus may come to an abrupt stop, as well as being mindful of school zone speed limits.
Last but definitely not least, make sure your teen drive always uses their seatbelts! Remind them to buckle up and make sure every passenger in their car is buckled up every single time they leave the house.
