Driving: A cautionary tale

  1. 1.   Driving:<br />A cautionary tale<br />
  2. 2. TIME TO DRIVE FRIENDS!<br />This will be:<br />easier<br />more fun<br />more efficient<br />
  3. 3. BUT, IS IT SAFE?<br />
  4. 4. Fact:  drivers between 16 - 20 are FOUR TIMES more likely than other drivers to get in an accident. <br />WHAT THAT MEANS?<br />BAD. <br />VERY,<br />VERY <br />BAD<br />
  5. 5.
  6. 6. NOT FUNNY!<br />The car accident death rate for teen male drivers and passengers is more than one and a half times that of female teen drivers<br />Hmm, I wonder where all the boys went…<br />
  7. 7. So much to live for…<br />First Tattoo<br />Fist bump the pres<br />Water Mountaineering<br />College<br />Wearing the pokewalker or tying it to a cat<br />
  8. 8. Why all these accidents? <br />Is there a god?<br />Does it seem like we’re WAY off topic here?<br />If there is a god, what does he/she have against teen boys? <br />Do pigs have souls?<br />
  9. 9. Reasons<br />38% of teen deaths involved speeding<br />24% of teen deaths involved been drinking and driving.  <br />Don't do that.  Doh.<br />
  10. 10. Don’t go out!<br />More than half of teen car deaths occurred between 3 p.m. and midnight, and 54% occurred on weekends. <br />It’s not that bad being a hermit.<br />
  11. 11. Safety Tip:<br />Mom! There’s nothing to do!<br />Stay at home wearing helmet, gloves, knee protection, and Lysol during those hours. <br />This is a perfect opportunity to learn to knit, honey!<br />
  12. 12. Seatbelts.<br />BUT…If you must go out…<br />Be like these smooth guys, and buckle up. Every. Single. Time. <br />
  13. 13. Don’t text while driving.<br />Bring a land line with you so you won’t be tempted.  <br />Ben, help me carry this thing! It weighs a ton!<br />
  14. 14. Call me if you’ve been drinking.  I will come get you anywhere, any time, no questions asked.  Ever.  No lectures later, nothing. *<br />*(Maybe just one brief powerpoint. But that’s it.) <br />
  15. 15. Drive as if your life depended on it!<br />
  16. 16. The end of another awkward parental lecture<br />By me.<br />
