The American Property Casualty Insurance Association (APCIA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Highway Loss Data Institute (IIHS) recently announced a new public education effort to reduce teen fatalities. “The Navigate to Safety program is a tool that can improve teen driver safety and make parents more prepared to support their teen drivers during their first years behind the wheel.” Explains Robert Passmore, vice president of auto and claims policy at APCIA.
He says, “America’s insurers have long been at the front lines of historic safety advancements like seat belts and airbags; helping teens develop responsible habits from the moment they begin to drive is the key to creating a generation of safe drivers and safer roadways for all Americans.”
The roadmaps cover choosing a vehicle, embracing safety technology, and laying down the law.
Here are a few highlights from the program.
