Safe Driving isn't Learned in One Day

  • Yourself

    Learn how to anticipate hot cognition situations and to keep safe despite your adolescent brain. Research shows the "Mental Contrasting with Implementation Intentions," (MCII) exercises can turn failure into success, and when your life, and the lives of others are on the line, this is clearly crucial.

  • Your Family

    Participate in a role play exercise developed by Dr. David Walsh that will get you and your peers into the heads of adults who have concerns about adolescent driving. Develop empathy skills as you imagine what it feels like to be a parent or guardian, who is handing over keys to the car, knowing what a risk that truly is.

  • Your School

    Safety takes as much learning and repetition as math or languages. It cannot be taught in one day. Knowing how to drive safely is a life and death issue, so it's key to take a leadership role and encourage teachers to integrate safe driving into their curriculum. Each class is an opportunity to keep you and everyone safe.
