Teen Safe Driving
According to the Centers for Disease Control, motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens, accounting for more than one in three deaths in this age group. SAVE has been working with teens to educate them on ways to drive smarter. May, National Youth Traffic Safety Month, is an important month to focus on driving safety with all the events surrounding the end of the school year such as graduation and prom. Car crashes take a tremendous toll on the emotional and physical health and well-being of our nation’s young people, parents, school officials, and law enforcement.
