Nothing Good Happens After Midnight – Protect Your Teen

1 comment

In my continued review of “Traffic Safety Facts 2005” compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (“NHTSA”) I came across a truly humbling fact. According to the NHTSA:

Thirty-nine percent of fatal crashes involved alcohol. For fatal crashes occurring from midnight to 3 a.m. and 75 percent involved alcohol.

Now I may be a small town Oklahoma country boy, but the words of my father echo in my ears. Nothing good occurs after midnight. Obviously this is true. As a parent, we should strictly enforce curfews of our children to ensure their safety. The facts are undisputable. If you allow your teen out past midnight, the chances of them being involved in a fatal car wreck increases dramatically.
