AAA Foundation Study: 58 percent of teen car crashes involve distractions 

March 25, 2015 - A new study from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that 58 percent of teen car crashes involve distractions. The AAA Foundation analyzed nearly 1,700 crash videos from crashes involving teen drivers and looked at multiple forms of distraction, including interacting with other passengers, use of a cellphone, singing and dancing to music, and looking at something inside or outside the vehicle.

Distracted Driving Awareness Month: April 2015

The number one cause of youth deaths in the United States is car crashes. Do you think using a hands-free device while driving makes you safer? Think again. About 26% of all car crashes involve cell phone use - including hands-free devices. View more information and resources for Distracted Driving Awareness Month on the National Safety Council's website.

Global Youth Traffic Safety Month: May 2015

Global Youth Traffic Safety Month (GYTSM) is an annual campaign held each May. Led by the National Organizations for Youth Safety, the goals of GYTSM are to raise awareness about youth traffic safety issues and to empower and engage youth to lead projects and programs addressing youth traffic safety. We focus on traffic safety during the times of increased risk - prom, graduation, and the summer driving season. According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, May and July are two of the deadliest months for youth on the roads. NOYS believes the power and work of youth leading peer-to-peer education efforts can save lives and prevent injuries.

Check back in mid-April for resources to support your Global Youth Traffic Safety Month activities.

New Website Coming Soon!

NOYS will be launching a new website in late April. In the meantime, connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
