National Safety Council Advises Limos for Teen Proms and Graduations

15 Jun 2018

The National Safety Council, an organization dedicated to the elimination of unnecessary deaths in workplaces, homes, communities, and on roadways throughout the country recommends parents allow their teens to get the limo for prom – and for graduation.

What Prompted this Encouragement?

A statement from the National Safety Council president and CEO, Deborah A. P. Hersman says it all, “Teens should attend their graduations and proms – not funerals.”

While renting a limousine for proms and graduations may seem cost prohibitive, the costs of not doing so may be higher still, especially in light of 2016 statistics revealing that 2,820 teens between the ages of 13 and 19 were killed in car accidents making vehicle crashes the leading cause of teen deaths in the United States.

Benefits of Hiring Limos for Graduation and Prom Festivities

For parents, there are many benefits to consider when it comes to hiring limousines for these special events and occasions in your teen’s life. Not the first of which is the “cool parent points” you’ll earn for giving your teens this gift. Most of them will not even see it for what it really is. Your opportunity to invest in their safety for the evening. These are just a few of the benefits you can enjoy by hiring a prom or graduation limo:

  • Safe transport for your teens to and from prom.
  • The luxury of an experienced driver behind the wheel.
  • Zero tolerance policies of my limo companies for underage drinking and illicit drug use.
  • Safety in numbers. Most friends enjoy limo rides best in groups (plus it helps to split the cost between multiple parents).
  • Provides some adult supervision even when you can’t be there to provide it.
  • Allows your teen to feel independent and worldly while allowing you to hold on tight a little while longer.
  • Limos will only take your teen to the destinations you’ve designated or allow.

The biggest benefit of all is the peace of mind that comes with providing safe transportation for your teen driver to and from these special events.

Unfortunately, you cannot hire limos for every occasion in their lives, which is why you might consider GPS tracking for teen drivers so you can keep a close eye on where they’re going, driving behaviors behind the wheel, and know their exact locations if anything does go wrong so you can get prompt help.
