Prepare Your Teen for the Road Ahead

National Teen Driver Safety Week is October 15 - 21
 
ODOT is joining with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration during National Teen Driver Safety week (October 15 -21) to encourage parents to talk to their teen drivers about the rules of the road.

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teens in the United States - ahead of all other types of injury, disease or violence. In Oregon over the past five years (2012 - 2016), 52 teen drivers ages 15 - 17 were involved in fatal crashes, leading to 56 deaths and hundreds of serious injuries.
 
Parents play an important role in helping to ensure their teen drivers take smart steps to stay safe behind the wheel. For those tips and more, see the full ODOT news release and visit the NHTSA webpage on teen driving.
