About CYDA

Our Mission:

Promote young driver safety in Colorado through prevention education, data and research, and legislation.

Who We Are:

Formed in 2005, the Colorado Young Drivers Alliance (CYDA), formerly known as the Colorado Teen Driving Alliance, is a coalition of state and local agencies, non-profits, and private-sector partners that work together to reduce teen motor vehicle crashes and improve teen motor vehicle safety. 

What We Do:

Areas of focus within the alliance include increasing enforcement of Colorado's Graduated Drivers' License law, increasing safety belt use statewide, and providing technical assistance and consultation to local Colorado Communities. Alliance members participate in workgroups that focus on educating the public, raising awareness, and policy and legislation.

CYDA members continually receive education and training on issues surrounding teen driving safety, best practices, and evaluation techniques. Additionally, the Alliance works to leverage funding and resources to complete a variety of teen driving safety projects. 

CYDA meets on the first Thursday of every month at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. New members are always welcome. Click here to complete a short application.
