Teens in the Driver Seat
Recognized as a national best-practice model by the U.S. Department of Transportation, Governors Highway Safety Association, and the National Safety Council, TDS uses peer-to-peer influence to bring together young drivers, parents, school administrators, and communities to reduce teen crashes on statewide roadways. An initiative developed by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute’s Youth Transportation Safety (YTS) Program, TDS addresses both awareness and behavior, using peer pressure as a positive force to promote safe driving habits and reduce the top five risks for teen drivers:1) Night driving2) Speed3) Distraction4) Seat belt use5) Impairment With many high schools increasing capacity for extracurriculars post-COVID shutdown, Washington Traffic Safety Commission Program Manager Debi Besser anticipates the program will continue to grow and increase traffic safety culture in years to come.
