The leading cause of death among teens is car accidents. In a new effort to reach young drivers, a Texas television station is hitting close to home... real close to home.
KHOU recruited moms and dads to "write" video letters to their new drivers.
In her video, mom Juanita talks to her son Diego. She reminds him of all the hopes and dreams she has for him and begs him to be careful while driving.
Mom Irma speaks to her preteen daughter and son about the day they will get their driver's licenses, reminding them that they are not indestructible.
The videos were made for National Teen Driver Safety Week.
