Atlantic Toyota and other Toyota dealerships like Huntington Toyota have sold vehicles to families with teen drivers. Now there is a new program that has been created by Toyota Corp and Discovery Education to help inform teens and their parents and educators. Both organizations believe there needs to be steps taken to prevent unsafe driving during the teen years as it is the most important time to instill responsible behavior. The new program that is geared to help promote this idea is called Toyota Teen Driver.
Toyota Corp and Discovery Education understand how important it is to have the right material available and to be able to teach that information back to teens while they are at home or in a classroom. Atlantic Toyota and Huntington Toyota vehicle owners should know an interactive and comprehensive website is available that provides all the information teen, parents or educators would need: www.toyotateendrivier.com. This website gives tools and resources which all promote the same central idea of teen driver safety.
There are four main parts to the Toyota Teen Driver website that will help those who are buying vehicles from Atlantic Toyota and Huntington Toyota and are teen drivers or have teen drivers in their families:
This interactive road driving challenge is available for teens to play and experience online. Heads Up! gives teens a virtual experience of some of the dangers associated with distracted driving. Once the game is played, teens can enter to win scholarship cash prizes of up to $5,000 from Toyota.
The Educator Competition pushes educators to create an entire driver-safety lesson plan that uses the information and tools on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the National Safety Council websites. Educators will also have to develop a public service announcement on teen driver safety. Prizes include two Virtual Driving Interactive Simulators for the Drivers Education classroom or Toyota Driving Expectations, a free behind-the-wheel program for teens and their parents.
Dynamic Digital Curriculum
There is a full and complete curriculum available online that includes lesson plans, activities and discussion starts. These resources are available to educators so they can get a better understanding of how to approach teens in the classroom and to know what information is best to educate the students.
Parents may be the most influential coaches for teens especially when teaching values and responsibilities. Available to parents are conversation starters, driving activities and a guide, which helps parents understand how to share relevant information with their teens.
Dealerships such as Atlantic Toyota and Huntington Toyota continually provide customer service to families. It's important all families are aware of important facts about safe teen driving. Long Island Toyota dealers believe Toyota Teen Driver is an amazing resource to get teens started in the right—safe—direction.
