What's the risk?
Travelling with two or more peer-aged passengers significantly increases their risk of crashing. That's why there are peer passenger restrictions for red P drivers.
Bowing to peer pressure and getting a regrettable hair cut won't kill anyone, but peer pressure that results in poor driving decisions can.
How can you help.
Understand that your kids are going to stay out late and they're going to do things that you rather they didn't. Youthful experimentation is a fact of life after all.
While it's fine to party with friends, it's not fine to party in the car. Good kids can still make mistakes, so encourage them to speak up to avoid getting into potentially risky situations.
