Back to school means more young drivers on the road. According to the National Safety Council, the number of teens that die each day in the U.S. from motor vehicle accidents could fill a classroom. But this number can be reduced by up to 40 percent when parents enforce rules when their teen is learning to drive. Some of the most effective rules include: zero tolerance for drugs and alcohol; never using a cell phone while driving; no passengers under age 18 until the driver is 18; wearing seat belts at all times; and limiting nighttime driving during the first six months.
