Advice to young drivers....

Based on the topic, teach them to be alert to the smell of coolant.

I have gone through 4 young drivers. I have been lucky. Alertness and awareness can be stressed and they will remember you for it.

Quick instructions while still in the driveway. They cant always call AAA (or you).

What coolant smells like and its consequenses of loss.
How jumper cables work.
How to safely change a tire.
How to check oil level and windshield fluid.
How to change a light bulb. (easy pull-over for cops)
How to pull OFF the highway. (not breakdown lane)
You can judge a car pulling out by looking at its wheel spokes.

Do this when they want the keys for independence. You are catching them at their peceptive and absorbant peak.
