National Teen Driver Safety Week is October 21-27, 2018

RulesForTheRoad_RGB.png 

This week and every week, parents should have conversations with their teens about the important rules they need to follow to stay safe behind the wheel of a passenger car, truck, or SUV. These rules address the greatest dangers for teen drivers: alcohol, inconsistent or no seat belt use, distracted and drowsy driving, speeding, and number of passengers.

For teens, driving means freedom. That doesn’t necessarily mean safety: most teens find themselves in danger on the road simply because they lack experience behind the wheel.

For more information about National Teen Driver Safety Week and to learn more safe driving tips for teens, please visit www.nhtsa.gov/road-safety/teen-driving.

 NATIONAL HIGHWAY SAFETY NEWS

Buzzed.jpg 

Halloween is a night for friends and family to enjoy candy, costumes, and memory-making.

Tragically, Halloween drunk-driving fatalities are on the rise. Over the last 5 years (2012-2016) there were 168 drunk driving fatalities on Halloween night.

From 2012 to 2016, 44% of all people killed in motor vehicle crashes on Halloween night (6 p.m. October 31 – 5:59 a.m. November 1) were in crashes involving a drunk driver, according to NHTSA statistics. Children out trick-or-treating, and those accompanying them, are also at risk, as 14% of pedestrian fatalities on Halloween night (2012-2016) involved drunk drivers. Younger people are most at risk: The 21- to 34-year-old age group accounted for the most fatalities (46%) in drunk-driving crashes on Halloween night in 2016.

Always remember: Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving!
