About National Youth Traffic Safety Month
In the U.S. more than 5,000 youth die every year in car crashes. Crashes are the number one cause of death and injury of teens in the U.S.  Crashes take more lives of our youth than alcohol, drugs, violence, and suicide. Youth Traffic Safety is no accident and steps can be taken to help protect youth and encourage them to stay safe on the roads. For more information visit http://noys.org/YouthTrafSafe/toolkit.html.
