The presentation was the kick off to National Teen Driver Safety week which runs from Sunday October 20 thru Saturday, October 26, 2019. This week will be a great time for parents to sit down with their teen drivers and discuss the importance of driving safe.
Congress established National Teen Driver Safety Week in 2007. National Teen Driver Safety week is held the third week of October to raise awareness about teens’ elevated crash risks and to start a dialogue on the issue of driver safety and in-car responsibility among teens, their parents, and civic leaders.
