Abstract:

Objectives: To determine the relations among parent-teen discordance for restrictions on driving conditions, driving rules, and consequences for rule violations at licensure and subsequent risky teen driving. Methods: Parents and teens completed telephone interviews at 1, 4, and 9 months after teens became licensed. Results: At each time interval, the degree of disagreement with parent restrictions on driving conditions was positively associated with teen risky driving. Conclusions: These results demonstrate a positive association between parent-teen discordance for driving conditions and teen risky driving. Initial establishment of restrictions and agreement with them may have longer term protective effects against teen driving risk.
