Prevent Teen Deaths: Free Teen Driving Training Aug 27-28

Motor vehicle crashes are the #1 killer of teens in America, and have been the leading killer of Colorado teens for decades.

Teen drivers are the greatest risk of all age groups. Factors that contribute to teen motor vehicle crashes include the following:

  • Driver inexperience
  • Driving with other teen passengers
  • Nighttime driving
  • Not wearing a seat belt
  • Distracted driving

Teen deaths from motor vehicle crashes are preventable. By continuously strengthening Graduate Driver's Licensing laws, Colorado has improved the safety of young drivers on the road by helping new drivers gain experience under low-risk conditions. However, there's still more that Colorado can do and why events such as Driver's Edge are important to keeping Colorado teens safe on the road.

Driver's Edge is one organization doing their part to save teen lives by providing FREE training for young drivers and their parents. It is their belief that this type of training should be available to everyone, not just those who can afford it.

Teen participants receive classroom and behind-the-wheel instruction on: skid control, evasive lane changing, panic braking, combating unexpected situations, and more. Real life training designed to alter young driver attitudes and behavior.
