TRAFFIC CRASHES ARE THE #1 KILLER OF TEENS

Every year, young drivers are involved in more than six million collisions, resulting in 14,000 fatalities.

Although young divers only represent 13% of all licensed drivers nationally, they cause 28% of all traffic crashes and 24% of all fatal crashes. By understanding the risks and hazards a teen driver faces while behind-the-wheel, teens and their parents can work together to keep them safe. Group rates available. We will come to your classroom/lecture room. This is one of the best limited time opportunities, email Jack Varnado or call (985) 643-7803
