Parent v Young driver engagement

Apologies if this subject has been covered in the past but does anybody have any case studies, programmes or research into joint parent/young driver engagement they could point me to?

Parent Young Driver Engagement

Lancashire County Council has something going with parents and young drivers. I recall them speaking about it at an AIRSO Meeting

Alan,

Please have a close look at The RS Observatory:

There is a lot about the importance of parental involvement.

Also do please contact a2om nrowley@a2om.com - the team there have had a long history of involving parents.

The Checkpoints programme in the US involves parents through a parent-teen driving agreement and by giving them tips on how to engage with their children. See http://www.saferdrivingforteens.org/

two pronged approach...

We have a campaign here in Lancashire that covers young drivers and their parents.
Helen's 23 year old son Daniel was killed when he drove home from a night out. Helen has done a lot of work with us sharing Dan's story to other young drivers to show the risks and consequences but also to ask other parents to be 'on the ball' and to encourage them to keep asking questions.
You can see parts of the campaign here: www.wastedlives.co.uk/daniel

Also, it is worth bearing in mind that a lot of telematics insurance schemes encourage parent and young driver discussion.
