Understanding Michigan Graduated Driver’s Licenses
In the past, we have posted information about teen driving safety, and more recently about teens and winter driving. Teaching teens safe driving practices is important. The Michigan Graduated Driver Licensing program for new drivers is an essential part of preparing teens for the road. The program works best when parents and teens are aware of, and abide by, the restrictions imposed on Level 1 and Level 2 drivers.

Teens & Winter Driving
The holidays are over, but winter weather is not. Above freezing daytime temperatures with rain can be deceiving, especially for inexperienced teen drivers. As the temperature drops at night, wet roads turn into icy roads and can also lead to black ice in the morning while teen drivers are making their way to school.
Conybeare Law Office Selected for 2017 “Best Law Firms” List

Additional Insurance Coverage Options Keep You Protected
A basic no-fault insurance policy has state mandated coverage in three parts: personal injury protection, property protection, and residual bodily injury/property damage liability insurance. It does not pay for vehicle repairs, replacement of stolen vehicles, or “mini-tort” liability. Your policy is also limited by the amount of coverage you choose to purchase.
Teen Driving Safety
The start of school this week means more teen drivers are on the roads. The attorneys at Conybeare Law Office are far too familiar with car accidents involving teen drivers. We would like to offer insight into where teen drivers go wrong and how parents can educate their teens to be safe drivers. We also want to address common mistakes parents make that put both themselves and their kids at risk when purchasing and insuring cars for their teen drivers.
