SACRAMENTO - Impact Teen Drivers worked with the California Legislature, Senator Alan Lowenthal and Assemblymember Cathleen Galgiani to declare this week March 21-27 "California Teen Safe Driving Week."
California Teen Safe Driving week is designed to raise awareness that reckless and distracted driving is the No. 1 killer of teens in America, and promote the message of safe driving to California teens.
Impact Teen Drivers, in partnership with the California Highway Patrol (CHP), is holding conferences statewide this week announcing a new partnership with the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) and RADD® (the Entertainment Industry's Voice for Road Safety) to spread the message to teens about the dangers of reckless and distracted driving.
Impact Teen Drivers will be joined by leadership from the CHP, OTS, California Teachers Association (CTA), California Casualty, and the State Superintendent of Education, Jack O'Connell, along with families and friends of those who have died in what has become the NUMBER ONE KILLER OF TEENS in America-Distracted Driving.
"It is crucial that we educate teens and empower them to promote the safe driving message in order to have a fundamental and sustained behavior shift," said Dr. Kelly Browning, executive director of Impact Teen Drivers. "This isn't about bad kids doing bad things, but good kids making poor choices. One poor choice can alter or end their lives and the lives of those they care about."
