Organization Overview

Mission Statement :
Car crashes kill more young people than any other cause, accounting for nearly half of all teen deaths in America each year. Most people don’t know why, but the Texas A&M Transportation Institute’s Youth Transportation Safety Program has made it their mission to research the most common causes of teen driving crashes AND address all major risks through the first peer-to-peer program, Teens in the Driver Seat®. Combined with a lack of driving experience, the top five dangers are; driving at night, speeding, distractions, impaired driving, and low seat belt use. Teens in the Driver Seat® is available for free to all high schools and junior highs in Texas. Yes the program is free, but it’s also engaging and provides leadership and public service opportunities all year round. Teens are responsible for implementing the program on their campuses and many schools regularly fold in traffic safety activities with other student groups, such as; Student Council, health clubs, SADD, FCCLA, and more. Teens in the Driver Seat® is an opportunity for teens to educate their peers, parents, and community and be rewarded for their efforts to create a safe driving culture on their campus.
