On the road in Montgomery County this week, I saw these bumper stickers on a car in front of me. Not only were they bright and reflective, they caught my attention by personalizing the concern this family obviously has for their newest driver.
Whatever it takes to wake other drivers up and keep our loved ones as well as ourselves safe is good by me. I did a little research to find out where to get these stickers if you are interested. Hope it helps because we already have enough traffic accidents to report on the radio as it is.
In addition April is Alcohol Awareness Month and MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) is encouraging parents to have conversations with their teens about the dangers of underage drinking as part of the Power of Parents program. Three out of four teens say their parents are the leading influence on their drinking choices.
Excessive teen drinking kills about 4,300 people each year — that’s more than all illegal drugs combined. Two out of three underage drinking deaths do not involve a vehicle. The earlier a young person begins drinking, the more likely they will become drunk drivers and alcohol dependent as an adult.
