The Youth Program consists of the 0-14 age group and the youth drivers group, ages 15-20. Each portion of the program has its own goals, performance measures and strategies toward reaching those goals and measures. A NHTSA Assessment of the Youth Program, conducted in September of 2002, provided a valuable written critique of the program's strengths and accomplishments and made recommendations for improvements. One of the highest priority recommendations was to develop a comprehensive, coordinated plan for youth traffic safety. The 2007 Oregon Transportation Safety Action Plan below, is a direct result of that key recommendation.
