The parental factor in adolescent reckless driving: The road ahead

This editorial introduces the articles in this issue, which is dedicated to the role parents play in the children's driving habits. The research has identified an association between parents' model of driving behavior and their adolescent offsprings' driving. Parental driving modes have also been found to have an impact on teens' attitudes about accompanied driving and endorsement of driving style. Parental modeling of anxious, risky or angry driving styles have been found to be associated with higher tension, avoidance, disapproval and anxiety in children's attitudes toward the accompanied driving period. This editorial explores possible explanations for this parental influence, including the socialization processes through which parents communicate their standards of conduct, and the articles in this issue further explore the topic.
