Teen Driving: Reducing Risks and the Importance of Parent Involvement

This episode will address teen driving, safe practices and the essential role parents play. Today’s guest, Violet Marrero, consumer safety administrator for NJM Insurance Group will help us cover a topic that impacts each of us in some respect.
