My dd 16's boyfirend wants to drive them to prom next saturday. He just got his license like 2 weeks ago and is not very experienced. They would have to travel on a very busy expressway to get to the venue. I am NOT ok with this. However my DH is thinking of letting him use our Subaru to go. I am really NOT ok with that. He is not on our insurance and heaven forbid he were to get into an accident they would not be covered for medical treatment. They are very lovey dovey all the time. What if he gets distracted by her? What if he uses his cell phone or texts while driving? What if they go to an after party and drink alcohol? I know alot of what if's...BUT even if I forbid all these things that doens't mean they are going to listen to me. She has a rule as of now that she is NOT to ride in the vehicle with him while he is driving.
Does anyone else agree that this is not the best idea?
Update: So the boyfriends mom and I have talked and she is not too thrilled with him driving to Prom either. Was a little upset that DH wanted him to show him how he drove and gave him false hope of driving them. I think DH just wanted to give the kid a break and let go of the reins we have on DD. BUT he didn't think to talk to the BF mom. After we talked she understood what DH was trying to do for them but prefers him not to drive. So we have made an agreement that Dh and I will drop them off and she will pick the up. Also if they are still together next that her and I will split the cost of a limo service for them as it will be their senior prom. That will be our gift to them (as we put it.)
