National Safety Council and Honda Launch Virtual Safe Driving Sessions for Parents of Teens

Motor vehicle crashes remain the number one cause of death for U.S. teens, as roads in America continue to be increasingly deadly. According to National Safety Council estimates, more than 21,340 people were killed in crashes during the first six months of this year. These numbers are down 1% from the same period last year but up 15% from 2020. For teens, NSC analysis shows occupant deaths totaled more than 2,400 in 2020, the latest year of available data, up 15.6% from 2019. 

To reverse this deadly trend, DriveitHOME, an NSC program dedicated to keeping teens safe on the roads, partnered with Honda as part of their corporate social responsibility team's initiative to support young driver safety. NSC and Honda will virtually bring together parents and experts from across the country via 15 brand new, free statewide parent nights. These virtual events will educate parents on the issues and risk factors teen drivers are up against and provide state-specific information for parents such as crash rates and GDL laws.
