More teens die in automobile crashes than any other cause of death in the United States. Countless others are injured. This is a widespread problem that requires a combination of national and local actions. Working on the community level, the National Foundation for Teen Safe Driving builds alliances with businesses, government, law enforcement, schools, parents and teens to prevent these tragedies. We create a culture of safety that enables teens to positively influence their peers and others to solve this problem.
Since beginning our work in 2008, National Foundation for Teen Safe Driving has evolved to became a strong and respected voice in a nationwide movement focused on teen safe driving.
NFTSD works with retail auto dealers across the country to advocate that distracted driving, especially among new and young drivers, is dangerous and potentially deadly. Dealers Driving Teen Safety is a community outreach program, created specifically for dealers, designed to give participating dealers options that work for them, to help advance the cause.
We are building upon our excellent track record, one that includes receipt of the Governors Highway Safety Association Peter K. O’Rourke Special Achievement Award for notable achievements in highway safety, the Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey Innovative Award, the Chamber of Commerce Leadership Award, Association for Safe International Road Travel (ASIRT) Youth Leadership Award, the Students Against Destructive Decisions’ (SADD) Outstanding Contribution Award, and honors from local community organizations. Through our involvement with organizations such as Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD), the National Organizations for Youth Safety (NOYS) and the National Safety Council, we are uniquely positioned to advance national best practices on the local level. NFTSD will continue to connect businesses to their individual community needs and build the alliances necessary to create a culture of safety. Working together we can prevent these teen tragedies.
National Foundation for Teen Safe Driving is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit charitable organization dedicated to reducing the number of deaths and injuries resulting from automobile crashes by promoting safe driving and passenger safety, through leadership, education and awareness.
