Teaching Your Teen to Drive
Technology has created a host of distractions for teen drivers that we, as their parents, didn’t have when we were first getting behind the wheel. Factor in other distractions, like weather and passengers, and it’s easy to see why inexperienced drivers under age 20 are the most likely to be involved in crashes caused by distracted drivers.
As a property/casualty insurance company, safety is at the very core of what we do. Yes, we provide coverage for our customers after accidents occur, but we also provide them with safety programs and tips in the hope that they can avoid those accidents. That’s why West Bend Mutual Insurance Company is proud to sponsor The Parent’s Supervised Driving Program. This program gives parents and new drivers a road map to identify and avoid distractions. The program also instills confidence through repetition, and creates a tracking mechanism to ensure new drivers complete the necessary hours of training through progressively challenging situations and conditions.
As a parent myself, I remember the apprehension I felt the first time my children ventured out on their own behind the wheel. With your active support, The Parent’s Supervised Driving Program can be a path for your teen to become a safe and successful driver.
On behalf of West Bend Mutual Insurance Company, I wish you and your family safe driving!
President and CEO of West Bend Mutual Insurance Company
