Coalition Initiatives

Ticket Your Parent(s)

Ticket Your Parent(s) program was designed by the Ohio Teen Safe Driving Coalition in partnership with the National Safety Council. Ticket Your Parent(s) is for teachers or organization leaders who work closely with pre-teens, who issue mock traffic tickets to parents or other adult drivers when teens observe unsafe driving behaviors. The fun and innovative program is free and easy to implement.

GDL Game Plan for Coaches

The GDL Game Plan for Coaches is a vehicle for high school and recreational or travel league coaches to hold an open dialog with athletes about enforcing and adhering to GDL laws in their state. The 4-page document includes an overview of how and why the Minnesota GDL program works; offers suggestions for engaging athletes, parents and fans; outlines a sample code of conduct; and lists online resources.


The HEARTS Network

Nearly everyone knows someone whose life has been impacted by a teen driving-related crash. The National Safety Council manages the HEARTS Network, a nationwide group of families and victims that have been directly affected by a crash involving a teen driver. The HEARTS Network – an acronym for Honoring Everyone Affected, Rallying The Survivors – helps families and victims support one another and advocate for change. We encourage anyone impacted by a teen-related motor vehicle crash to join the HEARTS Network and the Teen Safe Driving Coalitions.
