Rule 4: No Alcohol

Young drivers 15 to 20 years old are at far greater risk of death in crashes involving alcohol than the rest of us, even though they cannot legally purchase or possess it.

If lucky enough to survive a crash, your teenager will have to face the consequences of breaking the law. That includes a trip to jail, the loss of a driver's license, and dozens of other expenses including attorney fees, court costs, other fines, and insurance consequences. Your teen will also stand to lose academic eligibility, college acceptance, and scholarship awards.

Share this fact sheet on alcohol and driving with your teenagers and make sure they know the consequences of breaking your State laws on impaired driving.
