my 17 year old had a horrible accident mach 25 and was very blessed to escape with her life. She has recently just been in another accident where she hit someone from behind. it is a scary thought every time she drives.

Wow! my concerns exactly....I have a 15 yr old driving with a permit and every time she makes the smallest false move, I think how is she going to do this by herself. My brother in-law just introduced me to a new software program that I'm going to start selling here in Vegas called Websafety and Cellsafety.....designed to alert parents when preditory conversations take place online as well as turning off your child's cell phone while driving, so no unecessary distractions. You can check it out at www.mywebsafety.com/911 .....it should be available any day now. I'll be praying for all our children who are new drivers!

I have a 15 year old girl about to get her permit. Your story will help me to be patient and try to mold her into the best driver I can. But when it is all said and done all you can do is try to moniter them and pray. I hope you and your family stay safe. And remind her she has to drive for her and everyone else on the road.

thank you so much for sharing with me, i needed that support that my child isn't the only accident prone one out there, but most of all what one does when they are. thanks traci. i put some video posts on the community wall inexeperienced teenage drivers, but the first one is graphic. other moms of inexperienced teenage drivers should watch these, i have shared them with everyone i know b/c of, hopefully. the educational value, even though, horrific.

I totally understand how you feel. My son pulled out in front of a vehicle that was going 65 mph and 3 months after turning 16. The truck was totaled and we are very thankful he and his brother were not hurt. Then in March he rolled his 2nd truck and totaled it. I have learned to pray and trust God to take care of him. That is the only way I keep from going crazy with worry every time he sits behind the wheel.

My son is preparing to get his license now and we have already set ground rules that he has to follow to be allowed to drive. We limit the number of friends in his car, along with volume on the radio and his cell phone use. If he was in two accidents, he would not be driving until he could prove to us he can be responsible enough to get behind a wheel. I hope you are not covering her insurance. I would suggest taking a drastic measure at this point, fortunately she has not taken her own life or someone elses.

That would be scarry especially her only being 17 and already two accidents! If they are her fault I think you need to talk with her about being more causious and paying attention to only driving when she is behind the wheel!

I have a 16 year old boy, and though he doesn't have his license yet (he has made some poor, irresponsible choices), the thought of him getting behind a wheel and being responsible for so many lives is frightening. I am not sure that I would allow him to drive again for a while after having two accidents so close together. I REALLY hope that your daughter has better fortune whenever it is that she drives again, and hopefully she will be cautious and defensive when she does.
