NATIONAL TEEN DRIVER SAFETY WEEK

NATIONAL TEEN DRIVER SAFETY WEEK According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teens (15 to 18 years old) in the United States. This ranks ahead of all other types of injury, disease, or violence. As a result, the week of October 21-27, 2018 is set aside as National Teen Driver Safety Week. Parents are encouraged to have conversations with their teens about the important rules they need to follow to stay safe behind the wheel of a passenger car, truck, or SUV. These rules address the greatest dangers for teen drivers: alcohol, inconsistent or no seat belt use, distracted and drowsy driving, speeding, and number of passengers.
