Effect of the Teen Driving Plan on the Driving Performance of Teenagers Before Licensure
Research released today by the Center for Injury Research and Prevention at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) found that TeenDrivingPlan (TDP), a web-based intervention designed to help parents more effectively supervise driving practice, improved the driving performance of pre-licensed teenagers. The research, published in JAMA Pediatrics, involved five years of formative research followed by a randomized, controlled trial of young drivers and their parent supervisors.
