The Crazy Suburban Mom: To anyone who shares the road with teen drivers...

To anyone who shares the road with teen drivers...

This post is for anyone who is a teen driver, parents a teen driver, pays the car insurance for a teen driver - or soon will, or shares the road with teen drivers - So pretty much...  Everyone.

Bridgestone, you know them...  They make tires - is sponsoring a $10,000 scholastic for teens (US or Canada).   Teens can upload  a short (see details at the  Safety Scholars site)  video on driving safety until June 24 so get your kid to visit the website for details.  

Auto accidents claim the lives of more 16-21 year olds than any other cause. It is so important for teens to feel empowered, and we can help by encouraging them and their peers to avoid distracted and other dangerous driving behaviors. This contest is a great way for teens to be positive role models, share positive messages with their friends and compete for some great prizes at the same time.   Have your kid go check out  Safety Scholars

Look at it this way - Even if your kid doesn't make a video, the 2010 video winners are there and something may 'click.' 

 A-ha moments come in the most unexpected places, even links their moms sent.


P.S.  Why is Bridgestone doing this?  They say,  "Auto accidents claim the lives of more 16 - 21 year olds than any other cause. Your video can help us change that statistic. "  Having a teen between 16 and 21 I'm feeling a giant warm, fuzzy about them and want to buy  tires from a company like since I need tires at the moment.  Because yes, yes my digital alarm system is flashing 2 low tire pressure warnings - AGAIN.
