National Teen Driver Safety SWeek (NTDSW) is a week designed to make the public aware of teen driver safety issues, and encourages community and youth involvement as part of the solution.
National Teen Driver Safety Week will run from October 16-22, 2016. This year is the fourth annual.
Great momentum was achieved in 2015. Parachute and our community partners hosted over 500 events, and we are looking for even greater engagement in this year’s program. Please email [email protected] for more information and how you can participate in 2016.
