Traffic crashes are the leading cause of teen fatalities for 15- to 20-year olds. Every day, crashes involving young drivers take approximately 17 lives – nearly a classroom’s worth. Do you know an individual or organization that is helping change these staggering statistics?
The National Safety Council wants to recognize individuals and organizations that have made exceptional contributions to reducing the number of crashes, injuries and deaths involving teen drivers through the Teen Driving Safety Leadership Awards program, sponsored by General Motors. Winners will have taken actions such as:
- Leadership or coordination of an effort to adopt best practices
- Enacting legislation based on proven safety methods
- Enhancing public understanding of teen driving safety issues and prevention methods
- Demonstrating a consistent commitment to teen driving safety leadership
Nominate someone deserving of this award by July 15, 2010. For more information, click here.
