|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00340470|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : June 21, 2006
Last Update Posted : July 2, 2017
Teens are at high risk for traffic violations and car crashes because of their young age, lack of driving experience, and exposure to high-risk driving conditions. The Checkpoints Program has used increased parental restrictions on teen driving through at least the first 4 months after their children obtain a driver's permit.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of the Checkpoints Program.
Approximately 400 teens in Michigan will participate in one of two study groups. One group will take standard driver education classes; the other group will take driver education classes that incorporate the Checkpoints Program. Teens and their parents will complete a written survey after completing the classes and a telephone survey after teens obtain a driver's permit. Teens will complete additional telephone surveys 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after obtaining a driver's permit. Researchers will use this information to study how parents manage teen driving practices, teen driving experiences (amount and conditions of), and high-risk teen driving behaviors.
