A Guide to Ensuring Your Teen Driver is Safe!

"Designed for families, by families"

Your baby will always be your baby, but they are quickly approaching adulthood and taking the first big step towards responsibility!

They've received their license and now the inevitable questions come:

  • "Can I drive to the cottage?"
  • "Can I use the car tonight?"
  • "Can I take the car to college?"

For you as a parent, this is both an exciting and scary time. 

Teen Drivers; don't be a statistic

  1. One in five sixteen year olds have an accident during their first driving year. 
  2. 56% of cellphone users talk on the phone whilst driving. 
  3. 48% of people aged 12 to 17 report being in a car when the driver was texting.
  4. Speeding factored in 31% of US teen driver fatalities.
  5. 40% of teen vehicle deaths occur between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.
  6. New drivers are eight times more likely to crash or have a close call in the first three months after getting a license than during the last three months on a learner's permit. 
  7. 16-year-olds have higher crash rates than drivers of any other age.
  8. 56% of teens would not speak up if someone were driving in a way that scared them.

We understand that parents want to grant freedom to their teen, but also, they demand the peace of mind that their new driver is safe on the roads. 

We're parents too, we wanted the same peace of mind, but realised we didn't have it. WhereSafe was born!
