Teen Driver Safety


With half of all new drivers involved in a crash before they turn 20, we need better ways to prepare and protect drivers.

As an insurance company, we’re in the business of helping to put lives back together after a disaster, fire or crash. Homes can be rebuilt; cars can be repaired; valuables can be replaced…what we can't do is bring back those who have lost their lives in an accident. That is why Westfield supports programs that educate teens on driver safety.

Even when we’re not thinking about the worst that can happen, getting behind the wheel is a big responsibility. Teens are the most expensive population to insure for a variety of reasons, almost all of which tie back to inexperience.

Since 2005 teen driver safety has been one of Westfield’s primary focuses when it comes to supporting our communities. We are currently partnering on the following teen driver programs that help teens make better driving decisions, on and off the road.

Answers to Your Questions About Teen Driving

Recently, Westfield had the opportunity to partner with KDKA-TV, Ford Motor Company Fund, Allegheny County PreTrial Services, the Pennsylvania State Police and our local Pittsburgh insurance agents to combine resources and offer Pittsburgh-area parents and families the opportunity to phone in and ask an expert their questions about teen driving issues, insurance, driving skills, legal issues, automobiles and more! It was aptly named: Phone the Teen Driving Experts!

One call every two minutes!
Answering over 120 calls in a four-hour period, the Phone the Expert bank reached many more families than the traditional forum – being offered via television, it was a great way to potentially bring the experts directly to the homes and living rooms of the entire KDKA viewing audience.

We answered several insurance-related questions. Check out the questions and our answers to boost your knowledge of how insurance affects your family. Get the Answers!
