SAN ANTONIO (Oct. 15, 2021) — The San Antonio Municipal Court wants to acknowledge that National Teen Driver Safety Week begins on October 17. Motor vehicle crashes are the No. 1 cause of death among U.S. teens. Parents and guardians can be the biggest influencers on teen's choices behind the wheel if they take the time to talk with their teens about driver safety. This National Teen Driver Safety Week, the San Antonio Municipal Court would like to encourage adults to have conversations with their teens about the important driving rules they need to follow to keep them and San Antonio roads safe. These include:
  1. No alcohol or drugs. There is a zero-tolerance law in Texas for drivers under 21 years old.
  2. No cellphone use. Cellphone use is prohibited by the Texas GDL and for all drivers under the age of 18.
  3. No drowsy driving. The typical teen does not get enough sleep every night, making them more at risk when driving.
  4. No speeding. Speeding is one of the top three mistakes that teens make when learning to drive
  5. No passengers. Passengers under 21 in the car are one of the biggest distractions for teen drivers.
  6. Always wear a seatbelt! Most fatalities involving teen death are caused by not buckling up.
