Are You A Good Passenger?

ImageDrivers are responsible for getting everyone there safely, but passengers don’t have to take a back seat when it comes to safety. If you’re a passenger:

  • Always wear a seat belt.
  • Don’t upset or distract the driver – no drama, no hassles, no nagging.
  • Help navigate: Read the map and road signs, watch the road, look for gas stations and rest stops as needed, and make sure the driver is aware of his or her surroundings.
  • Avoid loud talking, loud music and noises – they’re distracting and affect a driver’s concentration.
  • Take charge of the cell phone: Receive and make calls for the driver.
  • Keep feet off the dashboard and sit upright. And – no body parts hanging out the window!
  • Never ride with a driver who has been drinking, taking drugs or is drowsy.
  • Help young passengers to adjust and wear seat belts, and supervise children in the rear seats (kids under age 13 should sit in the back).
