We’re on a mission

Traffic crashes are the leading cause of teen fatalities. Chances are, your community has been struck by a tragic crash involving a teenage friend, classmate or family member. The National Safety Council is trailblazing new ground to confront this crisis on a national level.

We’re on a mission to:

  • Improve state Graduated Driver Licensing laws.
  • Inform parents, teens and communities that they can beat the odds.

How can you get involved?

Help us advocate for stronger state Graduated Driver Licensing laws.

GDL reduces teen crashes by 20-40%, and states with stronger GDL laws prevent more crashes. The National Safety Council actively advocates state legislatures to strengthen GDL laws. Your voice as a voter is very important. To keep informed of our activities in the states and to help us advocate when needed, please create a personal profile and check "teen driving" as an interest.

Fight this national tragedy right in your own community.

The National Safety Council and its local chapters periodically hold parent workshops to introduce teen driver safety programs to the community. If you are interested in attending a workshop in your area, please send us an e-mail at with your name, address and phone number or call 800-621-7619. A representative from the NSC chapter in your area will contact you.

Join a Safe Community, an initiative of the National Safety Council, to reduce the impact of crashes in your area.

Do you already have a direct influence on young drivers?
If you’re a teacher, driving school instructor, administrator, police or public safety officer – or a concerned parent – you can help the young drivers in your community beat the odds. Become an Alive at 25® or an Alive at 25® Parent Program instructor and we’ll help you!



DriveitHOME™ is a new initiative from NSC for parents of teen drivers. It contains a library of resources illustrating the risks new drivers face in easy-to-understand text and videos. There also are a variety of tools to help parents build their teens’ experience and confidence behind the wheel.


The Hard Truth

Traffic crashes are the cause of 75% of deaths of people age 16 to 24.
