Prom 2009: Tips for Parents

As the school year nears its close, senior high school students in Northern Virginia and the rest of the metropolitan Washington, DC, area are preparing for one of the biggest events of their year: Prom!

And as parents prepare for their teen’s once-in-a-lifetime event, Reston Limousine encourages parents choosing their transportation company to ask for the Prom Promise. This document asks teens and their parents to sign a contract agreeing that passengers will not drink or take drugs on their Prom Night. The contract also opens the door for parents to discuss the importance of safety on prom night with their children.

Reston Limousine is proud to participate in this national program as part of its membership in the National Limousine Association. Here are some other tips for parents, courtesy of Reston Limousine and the National Limousine Association:

Give the transportation company a curfew. That’s right; the chauffeur will abide by any rules you set forth, and will make sure to pick up and drop off your kids at a designated hour. This is a great way ensure your kids make it home on time, no excuses.

Check with industry associations to make sure the company you choose is reputable.
Membership in organizations such as the National Limousine Association is a good indication that your service provider does their due diligence.

Set some ground rules. As the parent, you have the right to tell the transportation company what will and will not be tolerated in the vehicle. For example, you can ask that the chauffeur keep the privacy screen down for the entire ride, so that he/she has a full grasp of what your kids are up to. If any of your rules are broken, the chauffeur can turn the car around and bring your kids home.
