Children's Safety Network Releases Resource Guide for Young Drivers and Parents

Young drivers contribute to, and suffer from, the consequences of motor vehicle collisions at a disproportionate rate. Adolescent driver crashes often involve: driver error, lack of safety belt use, excessive speed, reckless driving, single vehicle crashes, nighttime fatal crashes, increased risk with every additional passenger, distractions, and alcohol and drugs.

The Children's Safety Network 2017 Resource Guide provides links to organizations, programs, publications, and resources focused on teen driving safety. It is divided into 14 sections: (1) organizations; (2) campaigns, programs, and toolkits; (3) data; (4) general publications; (5) Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL); (6) driver education and training; (7) parent supervision; (8) distracted driving; (9) passenger distraction; (10) technology distraction; (11) impaired driving; (12) drowsy driving; (13) drunk driving; and (14) drugged driving.
