April, May, and June are the the nation’s peak Prom season. High school Juniors and Seniors from across the nation will dress to the nines and go all out for this nationwide favorite rite of passage: The Prom. Teens will swoon with excitement while their parents snap photos and reminisce about their diaper years. However, with so many young people out on their own, things have the potential to go awry. At least one way for parents to help keep their kids safe is to book them a luxury limo from our Philadelphia Limo Service. Here is our list of top 5 reasons why booking a Prom Limo gives parents peace of mind:
1) Traffic Safety
According to statistics, approximately one-third of all alcohol-related teen traffic fatalities occur between April and June; also known as peak Prom season. Although most parents do their best to discourage teen drinking and drug use, AAA surveys of teens ages 16-19 report that about 41% of students said that it is likely they or their friends will use drugs or alcohol on prom night. That is a high percentage of intoxicated young people getting behind the wheel. Having one of our experienced and professional chauffeurs there can help ensure that, whether kids are intoxicated or not, they will be safer on the road.
2) Date Safety
1 in 5 high school girls will be a victim of physical or sexual abuse at the hands of a date. Whether your kids are going with their significant other, a best friend, a group, or a new crush, take some of the worries out of the situation. A chauffeur in close proximity will likely discourage any sort of ill-gotten violence, sexual or otherwise.
3) Curfew Safety
Proms end late at night, there’s no way around that. Our Philadelphia car service is booked on a destination and/or time basis. Parents can depend on our chauffeurs to get their teens home safely and on time instead of worrying about their teenager driving at night.
4) Location Safety
Often times, a school will hold their prom in a location other than their own gym; in some cases, a place where neither the students nor the parents have been. Our limo chauffeurs are experienced and have been to many places and, as such, they may have already accompanied celebrities and other VIPs to the exact location a Prom might be held. Parents can rest assured their teenagers won’t be lost in a strange area late at night.
5) Adult Safety
There are many miscellaneous scenarios that parents can play out in their heads that they would not want their teenagers to be faced with alone. Sometimes, simply the presence of a professional adult is enough to ease the minds of prom parents.
Help your teenagers have the best and safest prom experience. Add some luxury to their travels and let us get them there in safety and style.
