This week marks National Teen Driver Safety Week which takes place October 20 through October 26th.
The theme of this year's campaign is "It Takes Two: Shared Expectations for Teens and Parents for Driving."
Experts say teenagers should work with their parents or guardians so that teenagers can become safe, skilled and dependable drivers.
Here are some tips from teendriversource.org:
Locally, the A.G. Gaston Boys & Girls Club is taking part in National Teen Driver Safety Week.
The club is recognizing the week with UPS Road Code, which is a teen safe driving program.
The program is offered in conjunction with Boys & Girls Club of America.
"Road safety is an issue of global concern. To address this issue, the UPS Road Code, a state-of-the-art interactive program brings UPS' safe driving techniques and methods to young drivers," according to a news release from the Boys & Girls Club.
"Our program targets youth 13-18 years of age. The A.G. Gaston Boys & Girls Club is among the select few to partner with UPS and this teen initiative. UPS volunteers present classroom instruction to young people in the following areas: UPS driving "code" or habits, used by all UPS drivers; consequences of hazardous and distracted driving, identifying road hazards on an interactive computer-based game; and test-driving skills on a virtual simulator."
