Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

To determine the relations among parent-teen discordance for restrictions on driving conditions, driving rules, and consequences for rule violations at licensure and subsequent risky teen driving.

METHODS:

Parents and teens completed telephone interviews at 1, 4, and 9 months after teens became licensed.

RESULTS:

At each time interval, the degree of disagreement with parent restrictions on driving conditions was positively associated with teen risky driving.

CONCLUSIONS:

These results demonstrate a positive association between parent-teen discordance for driving conditions and teen risky driving. Initial establishment of restrictions and agreement with them may have longer term protective effects against teen driving risk.
