Learning to be a skilled driver takes lots of practice. TeenDrivingPlan is a program that helps increase the quality and quantity of practice time teens get during the learning permit phase. The basic program tools can be found here. These lessons can be completed by parents and teens individually, or could be part of a driver education class or community event.
In the full program, parents attend a one-hour session taught by a trained facilitator and receive free tools and follow-up information. For more information about scheduling a presentation, contact Deena Liska.

We learned that in Wisconsin, among our partners working on teen driver safety with us, there is a high level of trust between organizations, that power is shared among organizations, and organizations are making significant contributions to the work. We also learned that even though our relationships and goals have been informal to this point, there is some shared understanding about our work together.

According to AAA, deadly car crashes involving drivers between the ages of 16 and 19 jump an average of 15 percent during the period of time between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Because of this trend, AAA calls this the “100 Deadliest Days” for teen drivers. There are several factors that make this a dangerous time:
More teens are on the road since school is out for the summer.
Teens are more likely to have their friends in the car with them, which is a dangerous distraction.
Many teens are distracted by cell phone use, either texting or using social media behind the wheel.
