Driver Safety Policy
Teen driver crashes remain the leading cause of death for teens. Whether involved in government, community action, or another area of public service, you can help solve this complex issue by promoting stronger driver safety policy. Much legislative progress has been made, including Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) provisions, zero tolerance laws, and implementation of the National Minimum Drinking Age Act, but research shows there’s much more to be done to save teen lives through driver safety policy. You can help keep teen driver safety on everyone’s agenda. Become an effective agent of change by promoting evidence-based teen driver safety policy.
