How to Prevent Teen Car Crashes

You play a vital role in preventing teen car accidents. By educating parents about the importance of their role in teen driver safety, you are also helping teens become responsible, skilled drivers. According to recent research from The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, most teen car crashes are preventable, and parents play a vital part in the learning-to-drive process and beyond. When you get parents on-board to talk with their teens about safe driving, safe passenger behavior, and following "house rules" for driving, you are helping to prevent teen car crashes. Share the research-based information, educational resources, and communication tools found on this site with parents and other trusted adults to prevent teen car crashes.

We regularly add new resources and update existing resources to help you reach parents in their important role in the learning-to-drive process and beyond.  Subscribe to the Research in Action Blog to learn when new resources and research become available.
