TOPEKA – (May 9, 2013) – In a new public service announcement released this month, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt is reminding parents to talk to their teens about safe driving.
Schmidt partnered with The Century Council to produce the PSA promoting the I Know Everything program. I Know Everything reinforces that parents are one of the most influential driving instructors for their teen drivers and reminds teens that they do not already “know everything” about how to be a safe driver.
“Teenage drivers can sometimes be overly confident in their abilities,” Schmidt said. “This program reinforces that while our teenagers do know the basics about safe driving, it is important for parents to remind them of the keys to staying safe on Kansas roads.”
The PSA is airing this month across Kansas as well as online through YouTube, Facebook and Pandora. In addition, the I Know Everything program includes a supporting website, www.IKnowEverything.com, which includes downloadable information for students and parents as well as a facilitator’s guide for teen driver safety educators.
