What can you do when your teenager gets a speeding ticket?

1)      Try having them watch these videos of real-life stories of the tragedy that can follow speeding for a teen driver. Watch the videos with them and discuss what happened and the teens that were killed and how they would feel if it was their friend. These take about 30 minutes to view.

2)      Maybe have your teen write a paragraph about what they learned in the video.

3)      Try a community service project, most judges will require that anyway, but in case the judge doesn’t you can; there have to be consequences to the actions of a teenager.

4)      Find a monitoring system or app that will feed you the speed and location of the vehicle and monitor for the next 6 months, until they earn back your trust.
