Happy National Teen Driver Safety Week (NTDSW)! Today we are with David Strickland, the Administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, at a 10 a.m. (EST) press conference at the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). The event officially kicks off a week of activities that aim to start dialogues about teen driver safety amongst families, in schools, and in communities. NTDSW is now in its seventh year.
At the press event:
NHTSA is announcing its “5 to Drive” campaign that encourages parents to talk to their teens about 5 risky driving behaviors.
CIRP@CHOP is talking about the research and action around this year's theme: It Takes Two -- Shared Expectations for Teens and Parents for Driving.
Thank you for all you are doing to keep teen driver safety on everyone's minds during this special week and throughout the year!
