Parents' optimism and views on the Norms of Parental Involvement in Youth Driving

15 April 2013

The high crash rate among teenage drivers is of great concern across nations. Parents' involvement is known to help increase their young drivers' driving safety.

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.
