Teen Driving Safety

Parent - Teen Driving Agreement logoYoung drivers, ages 15 to 20 years old, are especially vulnerable to death and injury on our roadways. Traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for teenagers in America. Mile for mile, teenagers are involved in three times as many fatal crashes as all other drivers.  

Distracted Driving
