Support National Teen Driver Safety Week Now
History of National Teen Driver Safety Week
The history of National Teen Driver Safety Week (NTDSW) began after a series of tragic crashes involving Pennsylvania high school students occurred. Representatives Charlie Dent (R- PA) and Senator Bob Casey (D- PA) and over 50 co-sponsors introduced the resolution creating National Teen Driver Safety Week in October 2007.
The initiative was supported by the traffic safety experts at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company. National Teen Driver Safety Week (NTDSW) is conducted annually during the third full week of October in the United States.
Support for National Teen Driver Safety Week has grown. Celebrities, including Jesse McCartney, Oprah Winfrey,and Kelly Clarkson have formally endorsed the week, and many state and local officials across the country have also implemented programs and campaigns as part of NTDSW.
The next National Teen Driver Safety Week takes place October 15-21, 2017. Learn how to get involved.
