Parachute: 2017 National Teen Driver Safety Week Resources
National Teen Driver Safety Week: October 15-21, 2017
Parachute is excited to announce the fifth annual National Teen Driver Safety Week (NTDSW) in Canada. NTDSW is designed to drive public awareness of teen driver safety issues, and encourages community and youth involvement as part of the solution. National Teen Driver Safety Week will run from October 15-21, 2017. Great momentum was achieved in 2016. Parachute and our community partners hosted over 500 events, and we are looking for even greater engagement in this year’s program.
This year, our messaging will focus on the issues of drugged, distracted, impaired and aggressive driving (including speeding). We are excited to work with local schools, police and partners to implement activities in communities across the country, including Positive Ticketing Blitzes and Parking Lot Makeovers. We will also encourage teens, parents and community partners to join the discussion on social media, using the hashtag #GetHomeSafe. Please email Isabel at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and how you can participate in 2017.
