AAA offers Teen Driver Safety Tips:
- Always remain alert. Avoid distractions and focus on the task of driving.
- PUT IT DOWN – no text or call is worth a life.
- Wear your seat belt.
- Obey speed limits.
- Move Over For Me- Each year drivers are struck and killed while outside a disabled vehicle on the roadside. This does not include those that were critically injured or walked away from an incident. Law enforcement and EMS? We Move Over. A AAA Tow Provider? We Move Over. If you see a disabled vehicle? Move Over! The person on the roadside could be you, a friend, family member, coworker, or neighbor.
