If I can summarize my advise on how to crash proof your kids, it's just get really involved. Spend more time than you think, and probably your teen wants to spend in doing this. You have to make this a very big and important deal. And if you communicate how important this crash proofing process is and how dangerous driving can be, you get an additional benefit as well, because when your teen becomes a parent of teens, they're going to train their teens the same way, so the kind of things that you teach them today are going to reverberate in future generations.

Author & Teen Driving Expert

Timothy Smith is a healthcare executive living in the Chicago area with his wife and three children.   He got involved with teen driving several years ago when a number of teenagers were killed in multiple crashes near his home, virtually all due to driver error.   His search for information to help his teens avoid car crashes yielded little of value, so he became a certified driving instructor, got trained and licensed to race cars, took defensive driving courses and ended up writing Crashproof Your Kids: Make Your Teen A Safer, Smarter Driver.  He is also Chairman of Aegis Mobility, a software company which has developed technology to manage and reduce cell phone use while driving.
