Keeping teen drivers safe

 

Teen driver safety is a huge issue in Canada - while young people only make up 13% of licensed drivers, they account for approximately  one quarter of all road-related injuries and fatalities. Most of these injuries and deaths can be prevented. 

 

Between October 18-24, 2015, Safe Community Wood Buffalo will lead National Teen Driver Safety Week (#NTDSW) in Fort McMurray, a campaign designed to stop the clock on unnecessary teen deaths on the road by raising awareness and seeking solutions.  

 

We encourage all drivers to protect themselves and their communities by pledging to  #PracticeSafeText while they are driving. Remember: keep two hands on the  wheel and two eyes on the road.  Our thanks to everyone who participated in National Teen Driver Safety Week and made 2015 our most successful year yet!

Leave the phone alone and take the PLEDGE!
