(BPT) - Michelin North America, Inc. partnered with Governors Highway Safety Association to provide resources to parents during National Teen Driver Safety Week.

A newly released survey of parents reveals that many teens are experiencing a COVID-19 related disruption in driver education/licensing, but 35% of parents don’t have a backup plan for replacing lost learning. Motor vehicle crashes remain the No. 1 killer of teens in America, and according to analysis by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly 300,000 crashes involving young, inexperienced drivers are related to tire issues like worn treads and over- or under-inflation.
