Burnaby, British Columbia – The British Columbia Automobile Association (BCAA) Traffic Safety Foundation is offering workshops for parents, grandparents and caregivers of teenage drivers to help with the driving education process.

The Foundation said that car crashes are the number-one cause of death and serious injury among teenagers in the province, but that research indicates that these crashes can be reduced by up to one-third when parents take an active role in their teenager’s driving education.

The In the Driver’s Seat workshops are held at high schools and workplaces around the province, and are designed to help families understand the risks and manage the education process.
