Like most parents, my wife and I are always looking for ways to give our daughter a leg up in life. We closely monitor and support her scholastic, athletic, and volunteer endeavors, we’re openly concerned about her general health and welfare, and we make a point of finding time to chat with the kid about life in general. My daughter would tell you that we’re pests, but she knows our hearts are in the right place.
So, when my daughter began driving this past spring, it occurred to me that there must be more we could do to keep her safe. Sure, she’s a careful driver, and her car is in good condition, but what, I asked myself, does she really know about driving?
