Parents can place restrictions on their son's/daughter's driving (e.g., restrict night time driving), which can enable the young driver to gain driving experience in safer conditions. Little is known about what parents think about parental responsibility regarding young drivers' driving and this study from The Herzog Institute for Media, Politics & Society, Tel Aviv University, addresses this question.
