The following initiatives can help teens become good drivers for life and assist parents and guardians during the learning process:
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 is for teachers or organization leaders who work closely with pre-teens. The program begins with a discussion about safe driving behaviors and program facilitators give pre-teens a book of mock traffic tickets to issue to parents or other adult drivers engaging in unsafe driving behaviors. The tickets are not collected, but participants tally the number of tickets they issued for various offenses (i.e., using a cell phone, texting or not wearing a seat belt) and talk about what they learned while observing their parents’ driving behaviors.Register to host Ticket Your Parent(s) today! All materials are free and available.
The HEARTS Network
Personal stories are powerful ways to advocate for change. For that purpose, we have created a “Sharing HEARTS” section of the HEARTS Network webpage where we tell the stories of those impacted by teen-related crashes.
