The Kansas Department of Transportation is trying to find ways to reach teenage drivers. They are impressionable, and easier to teach good driving habits than adults who may have been driving unsafely for years.
There was a safety conference Monday in which students were invited to take to the internet and inspire others to drive safely. They are going to MySpace, YouTube, Facebook and other sites.
Parents admit this is a good place to reach their kids, as they spend hours online chatting with friends.
There may be some discomfort with anyone reaching out to teens online, but parents admit it is their duty to monitor their kids.
