Teen Distracted Driving Simulator in Dallas area this weekend

Your son or daughter just got his or her driver’s license and is now ready to take the wheel. For a parent, there is nothing more frightening than the first year your child is out on the open road, unsupervised. Toyota wants to take the fear out of that first year. Toyota of Grapevine and McKinney are holding free Teen Driving Safety clinics this weekend. These clinics are aimed at the pre-driver before the journey begins.

Participants will have the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the TeenDrive365 simulator, which will open their eyes to the distractions that could be present when they are in a real life situation. Then they will be put to the test during a scavenger hunt to find the 15 places on a car with which everyone should be familiar. This will include things like where the spare tire is, where the oil gauge is located and the tire pressure gauge. How wonderful would it be if you could ask your teen to fill up the car before they got home, and they knew where the gas tank was? So, take the time to get your teens to the simulation this weekend. Remember, it is important that teens drive safe.
