To bring attention to safe teen driving this summer, BeSmartBeWell.com is inviting the 15,000+ members of its Facebook community to make today, June 20th, Safe Teen Driving Day.
On the Safe Teen Driving Day event page, BeSmartBeWell friends are invited to join the Safe Teen Driving movement, interact with experts and share ideas on how they will stay safe today, and every other day of the year.[ Also Read: Why and How Companies Use Facebook ]

Other contributors include Eliseo Saldivar, a longtime driving education instructor and faculty advisor to a safe-driving campaign, and Bryan Epstein, a high school student and national teen driving advocate.[ Also Read: Say No to Texting While Driving: Kasey Kahne ]
There will be videos on teen driving and a downloadable parent-teen driver agreement. The agreement lists driving rules — like always wear a seat belt, never text and drive, etc. — and spells out consequences for violating those rules.
Also on Facebook.com/BeSmartBeWell, experts and real-life parents provide practical advice for starting conversations about safe driving and getting teens the driving experience they need to be safe behind the wheel.
