ROCHESTER, Minn. – More and more teens are hitting the roadways but new research is suggesting they are not spending enough time with their parents behind the wheel.
The research, by RoadReady suggests parents are fibbing on those driving logs given to teens who have their permits. According to Minnesota state law, teens should be driving with their parents for 30 hours total. A driving instructor we spoke to believes that number should be between 50 and 100 hours. “Basically you are building a foundation early on. Getting the basics of smooth control driving, correct stopping, making turns correctly, being aware of their surroundings, things like that,” Owner of the Enhanced Driving Institute Adam Newbloom said.
