We would like to congratulate all of our winners. Whether you are an Instructor, a Training Center or a Chapter, everyone plays a vital role in advancing our progress on the Road to Zero.
Last year, more than 40,000 people died on U.S. roadways due to vehicle crashes. Sadly, that’s over 100 lost loved ones each day. The National Safety Council trains more than a million drivers each year with its defensive driving programs, which support our organization’s mission of eliminating preventable deaths. The Council annually recognizes Chapters, Training Centers and Instructors for outstanding performance, demonstrating exemplary leadership, as well as dedication to advancing the Council’s mission of eliminating preventable deaths.
Every year the NSC Defensive Driving Team recognizes the top Chapters for their contributions for most new Instructors trained, top Training Centers for most drivers trained and Instructors of the Year for our defensive driving programs.
NSC would like to thank you for your leadership and the valuable contributions you have made in advancing our shared mission of eliminating preventable deaths. NSC is honored to share this mission with each of you.
