Get Behind National Teen Driver Safety Week (NTDSW)

National Teen Driver Safety Week (NTDSW) is dedicated to raising awareness and seeking solutions to preventable teen deaths and injuries on the road. National Teen Driver Safety Week takes place October 16-22, 2016. Get involved at your school or in your community by sharing safety messages with your peers.

Many people, including teens, think that the best way to reach young adults is to “scare them straight.” This rarely works. It can be overwhelming and cause teens to shut down. Research shows that teens understand they are vulnerable and are well aware of many risks. So, focusing on positive actions teens can take to be safe and keep their friends safe can be a powerful message for teens.

There is also research that demonstrates an "avoid the regret" message can resonate with youth and families on traffic safety topics.

If you're looking for a theme for your school or community activities, you may want to tap into the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)'s theme -- ‘Avoid the Regret – Avoid Impaired Driving.

NHTSA encourages teens to share their ideas to avoid impaired driving on tumblr -- #ultimatepartyfoul.
