Parent-Teen Night / Truck Smart

Parent Involvement
is key

Parent involvement is key to preventing crashes among new drivers. Zero Fatalities Parent-Teen Night presentations help parents make a positive impact on their teen’s learning experience. Parents and teens attend the presentation together and discuss together afterward the key takeaways. For more than a decade, parents have given overwhelmingly positive reviews to these 60-minute presentations addressing some of the top behaviors teen drivers need to know. They help teens establish safe driving habits and remind parents to be better examples, so we can all reach our goal of Zero Fatalities.

Parent Teen Night In-Person and virtual presentations

Parents and teens are both required to attend this presentation together. 

Upcoming Events

It’s easy to ignore a statistic, but when it comes to your own life or the life of a loved one, even one fatality is too many. To teach the importance of Zero Fatalities and how we can get there, we host many events throughout the year and all throughout the state for parents and students to attend together. Our hope is that after the presentation, it will encourage a discussion about the responsibility each driver has on the road.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR VIRTUAL PARENT-TEEN NIGHT:

  1. When registering, MAKE SURE TO USE THE STUDENT’S NAME AND A NON-SCHOOL EMAIL ADDRESS. (The certificate will be sent to this email and many schools block outside emails.)
  2. Students and parents/guardians are required to turn their camera on. Make sure you use a device with a webcam.
    Reminder: you cannot join this meeting in a moving vehicle.
  3. Only the host and moderator will be able to see everyone’s cameras. Participants will not be able to see each other’s cameras or chats.
  4. A moderator will be monitoring the cameras to ensure both parties are attending. If both parties are not on screen, they will be removed from the meeting and need to reschedule when both can attend a virtual or in-person meeting.
  5. To get credit for the virtual parent night: students who attend at least 50 minutes of the presentation with their parent/guardian will receive a certificate of completion the following day. This certificate will be sent to the email used to register for the meeting. If you join late or leave early, you will not receive the certificate and need to register for another meeting.

  7. Note: the meeting will be locked until about 5 minutes before start time, then you will be let in.
Truck Smart Logo

Did you know that approximately ¼ of all vehicles on Utah roads are large trucks? Nationally, over 75% of auto vs. truck crashes are caused by negligent driving on the part of the auto driver. By understanding just how massive these trucks are, how large their blind spots are, and how much room they need to operate and come to a stop, our roads and highways can be a much safer place for everyone.

Utah's GDL Laws

Graduated driver licensing allows new drivers to learn driving skills over time and gain the experience needed to become safe drivers. Teens receive a “limited driver license” and have certain driving restrictions such as night-time driving, limitations on who can be in the vehicle with them and the amount of supervised driving time they must have before getting a full license. Watch these parents and teens answer questions about Utah’s Graduated Driver License laws. How would your answers compare?
