Studies show only 15 percent of the miles driven by teens are at night, but nearly 40 percent of fatal crashes involving teens occur when it is dark out.
The national Safety Council recommends that driving at night should be a part of the learning process, and that parents give teens at least ten hours of supervised during that time.
Parents are also encouraged to teach their teen not to look directly into the headlights of oncoming vehicles. Instead, instruct them to angle their gaze to the right side of the road until a vehicle passes, to avoid glare.
