Car Crashes are the No. 1 Cause of Preventable Death for Teens
Driving is a major risk for teens, and the main reason is inexperience. As parents, we need to stay involved with our teen drivers, especially after they are licensed. We believe parental enforcement of the best GDL rules can greatly reduce the odds of teens being in a crash.
DriveitHOME™ is an initiative of the National Safety Council, designed for parents of new teen drivers. DriveitHOME™ offers free resources parents can use to help their teen build experience behind the wheel and become safer drivers.
Our goal is to reduce the number of driving deaths, injuries and crashes involving teen drivers to zero. Any other number isn’t good enough.
We invite your feedback and participation. If you have any questions or comments, please email us at [email protected].
Requests to share resources on the DriveitHOME™ website or on our social media channels, including infographics, videos, blog posts originating on another site must not be branded to promote a product, business or service not affiliated with NSC. Because DriveitHOME adresses teen driving safety as it relates to GDL laws in the United States, we typically do not share resources outside of the U.S. unless they relate or compare to teen driving in the U.S. Additionally, resources cannot link to or reside on a business website (including but not limited to the examples above) not affiliated with NSC. Almost all of our resources are research-based and provided by public health, injury prevention and traffic safety organizations.
All resources should be focused on traffic safety, ideally as it relates to teen drivers. Remember we are parent-focused, so information aimed specifically at parent education and involvement is given first priority.
