Georgia launches teen driving safety campaign

ATLANTA (AP) - The Georgia Department of Driver Services is launching a campaign to encourage parents of teen drivers to talk to their children about safe driving.

The "5 to Drive" campaign coincides with National Teen Driver Safety Week, which runs Oct. 19-25. The campaign urges parents of teens to talk to them about safe driving and to set rules before their teens hit the road.

The department says the campaign addresses the five most dangerous behaviors for teen drivers. It gives parents five rules to share with their kids:

1. No Drinking and Driving.

2. Buckle Up. Every Trip. Every Time. Front Seat and Back.

3. Put It Down. One Text or Call Could Wreck It All.

4. Stop Speeding Before It Stops You.

5. Observe Passenger Restrictions.
