Deaths due to reckless and distracted driving are 100% preventable.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (PRWEB) October 17, 2021
National Teen Driver Safety Week (NTDSW) begins October 17, 2021, and Impact Teen Drivers (ITD), a nationally recognized leader in teen safe driving, is launching the “Speak Up 4 Safety” social media campaign. ITD’s grassroots movement has brought millions of teens, parents, schools, law enforcement, advocates, health care professionals, and policymakers from across the country together to tackle the #1 cause of death for teens in the U.S.—car crashes, especially those caused by reckless and distracted driving. The theme of the campaign is “When you see something, #SaySomething.” Deaths due to reckless and distracted driving are 100% preventable.
Impact Teen Drivers invites you to collaborate in their dynamic campaign! There are 4 easy ways to help save lives.
