More than 10,000 teenagers in Texas are killed and injured each year due to car crashes, and car crashes remain the leading cause of death among teenagers across the country. To help educate teens and their parents about the licensing process and safe driving, AAA Texas will host a free workshop called Dare to Prepare. The workshop is designed for pre-permit teens ages 14 – 17 years and their parents/guardians.

The ‘100 Deadliest Days’ for teen drivers represents the period between Memorial Day and Labor Day when teens are more likely be involved in fatal crashes. “There are more daily deaths from crashes involving teen drivers during the summer months than the rest of the year because teens tend to have more unstructured time behind the wheel,” said Kara Thorp, AAA Texas public affairs specialist.

Workshop topics will include:

  • State Graduated Driver Licensing requirements and restrictions
  • Risks and responsibilities of driving
  • Parent/guardian roles in the learning process
  • How to pick a safe vehicle
  • What to look for in a driving school
  • Safety information on distracted, impaired and drowsy driving
