Car Accident Attorney Applauds Novice Driver's Road Map
Teaching our youngsters the proper way to drive isn't always easy, but it is extremely important, not only for their saftey, but for the safety of everyone on the road. That's why your car accident attorney at Lowman Law Firm fully supports the Network Of Employers For Traffic Safety, or NETS. According to their mission statement, "NETS is dedicated to improving the health and safety of employees, their families and the community by preventing traffic crashes that occur both on- and off-the-job."
NETS has a program called The Novice Driver's Road Map:
"Practice is the key to a novice driver’s education. To help parents succeed as a driving coach, NETS has produced a new edition of The Novice Driver’s Road Map, an 8-step guide for parents. The Road Map is an easy-to-follow “curriculum” for parents to guide teens in the practice needed to be a safe, focused driver — and in most states, also required to be licensed."
"NETS is offering sponsorships of The Novice Driver’s Road Map to companies that want to reach out to employees and the communities where employees work and live. In addition, driver trainers, licensing agencies, highway safety organizations, schools, peer-to-peer groups and individual parents may purchase The Novice Driver’s Road Map and benefit from its easy-to-use teen driving practice plan."
Your car accident attorney at Lowman encourages every parent to visit the NETS site. There you will find resources like infographics, a "parent-teen contract," statistics, advice and how to become a sponsor yourself.
More On NETS From Your Car Accident Attorney: An 8 Step Guide To Safety
According to the NETS press release, "The Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS) says that frequent “ride-alongs” with employee drivers to observe and discuss driving habits is a best practice of leading fleet safety programs. That same concept can be applied to parents of teen drivers.
"To help parents guide teens in developing the skills to be safe, focused drivers, NETS has announced the release of the new Novice Driver’s Road Map: An 8-Step Guide for Parents."
"A study released last week by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety concluded that parents don’t spend enough time supervising teens’ practice time behind the wheel. “Spending time with teens behind the wheel can be a stressful, intimidating experience for parents,” said Bill Windsor, NETS Chair and Associate Vice President of Nationwide Insurance. “Using the collective experience of company fleet managers,The Novice Driver’s Road Map provides parents with a structured approach to coaching their teens in a variety of driving environments.”
If you have been injured and need the assistance of an experienced, compassionate and aggressive car accident attorney, contact Lowman Law Firm for a free consultation.
"The guide is built around a series of eight coached drives that increase in complexity and include a checklist of practice skills for each drive along with a set of guided instructions. The practice sessions progress from driving in a parking lot to driving at night and in inclement weather."
