Bad weather makes driving more dangerous for all drivers. However, teen drivers do not have enough experience to react safely in bad weather.
Tips for parents of teen drivers
Limit your teen's driving in bad weather. Allow unsupervised driving only in good weather during the
first months with a license. Gradually allow unsupervised driving in more severe weather as your teen gains more experience.
Whenever your teen heads out on the road, encourage them to check the weather. Stress the importance of driving slowly on slippery or snow-covered roads. Remind them to leave more following distance between them and the vehicle in front of them so they have enough time and room to stop if needed.
