Teen driving awareness...

Chase took his first driving lesson today. I am now pursuing everything I can find regarding reckless and careless driving. Looking into SADD, MADD and others. I want Chase to have all the facts. I want him to see everything with open eyes to the dangers of driving. Not just his, but others as well. Got something that I/he can use, please contact me.

The first video is from the Kyle David Miller Foundation. A little 3 year old boy that was killed by a careless driver. Please visit this site, not only if you have small children in a booster seat, but also if you are a driver of ANY age. Know how you drive can affect the lives of so many others...Be careful on the roads.

If he hasn't seen it, show him Kyle's youtube video. Kyle was killed because a person was careless and ran a red light. Something as simple as not paying attention for a fraction of a second can end an innocent person's life.
It's important that all drivers realize that they are wielding an extremely powerful weapon in their hands that can easily kill them and others if not handled with extreme care.

I don't even want to think about the day my oldest starts driving, I will be a nervous wreck! I'm glad to see you are taking his driving so seriously and teaching him what a huge responsibility it is.

I think it is wonderful you are preparing and teaching your son about the huge responsibilities of operating a vehicle. I will also be doing the same in about 13 years.
