29 percent of BC parents believe their teens have picked up a bad driving habit from them. That’s the result of a new survey from ICBC, where the insurance agency tried to find out how driving behaviour is passed on. Regional Manager Ted Ockenden says the survey also showed parents believe their teens have picked up a number of bad driving habits from them.
“And the most common bad driving habits they’ve identified are speeding, rolling stop signs, impatience, eating and not performing proper shoulder checks.”
Ockenden says this survey will hopefully remind parents to be attentive to their driving when they have their children in the car. ICBC also hopes parents will access other resources to teach their kids safe driving habits.
