Driver Safety Policy

By promoting stronger driver safety policy, teen drivers -- and everyone on the road -- will be safer. Although many are committed to reducing the leading health threat to our nation's youth, motor vehicle crashes remain the No. 1 cause of death for adolescents in the United States. 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.
