The Chalik & Chalik Law Offices has announced their support of the upcoming National Teen Driver Safety Week. The campaign officially started on October 20th and will run through October 26th. The campaign was initially started by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in hopes of reducing the high car accident rate among teenage drivers.
In the United States, the car crash risk is on the rise among teenagers, especially during the first few months of becoming licensed. In fact, the leading cause of death among teenagers between the ages of 15 – 21 are car accidents, according to the NHTSA.
Chalik & Chalik believes there are certain methods parents can use to help their teenagers become safer drivers.
“Nothing is more devastating than seeing your child injured or worse,” says Attorney and co-founder, Jason Chalik.
“Parents who establish, enforce and monitor safe driving practices raise teenagers who are more likely to respect and obey the driving laws. As a result, they are less likely to get involved in car accidents.”
Mr. Chalik has witnessed far too many incidents where teens were injured in car accidents. This is one of the reasons why his law firm is so adamant about preventing teen related car accidents.
The South Florida law firm has developed the Teen Safe Driving Initiative exclusively for parents who want to protect their teens. It involves a parent signing a contract, with their teen, agreeing to ‘Drive By the Rules, Keep the Privilege’. Parents are advised to have their teens sign the contract prior to allowing them to drive a car.
During National Teen Driver Safety Week, teens and parents who sign the contract will be automatically entered in a prize drawing to win 2 mini iPads. One will be awarded to the teen and one for the parent on October 31st. The event will be closed for entries on the 30th.
National Teen Driver Safety Week is open to Florida residents only. Teens must be at least 15 years old to enter the drawing.
