Local law enforcement stressing teen driver safety 

With National Teen Driver Safety Week in progress, local school resource officers are sharing information that parents should go over with their teen drivers.  Southern Door School Resource Officer Greg Medlen says teens who recently obtained their driver’s license should be aware of three critical errors that can lead to serious crashes when behind the wheel.  He notes speeding, scanning to notice possible hazards, and distracted driving.



National Teen Driver Safety Week reminds parents to have conservations with their teens about staying safe behind the wheel of a motor vehicle.  Officer Medlen adds that wearing a seat belt is one of the simplest ways for teens to stay safe while inside a vehicle.  Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among 15 to 20-year olds, according to the National Center for Health Statistics.
