Develop a contract between you and your passengers which outlines the responsibilities you take on board as the driver of your vehicle, and the behaviour which you think is reasonable to expect from your passengers. You may like to consider alcohol, seatbelts, road rules, speed, safety, fatigue, noise, and distractions.

As a part of your contract, consider actions you could take if your passengers fail to behave appropriately.
