Celebrate Montana Teen Driver Safety on Tuesday, October 18 - What is your school doing this year?

Montana Teen Driver Safety Day is the third Tuesday in October during National Teen Driver Safety Week. Proclaimed by the Montana State Legislature in 2009 at the urging of students from Belt High School, its mission is to bring Montana teens, community leaders, educators, and parents together to prevent young driver crashes, the leading cause of death for teens.

How is your school district celebrating teen driver safety? Please take our survey and share what your students are planning to do this year. Visit the Traffic Education webpage for ideas and resources to highlight the importance of driving focused, alert and buckled up.

The Fall 2016 Montana Roundabout will be mailed to school districts soon, but you can download a pdf copy now.  Get ideas for Teen Driver Safety Day, Plan2Live and Vision Zero Initiative resources from the MT Department of Transportation, Peer-to-Peer Traffic Safety Program grants, and best practices for your Traffic Education Program.

If you don't have time to take the short survey, share your Teen Driver Safety Day celebration with us! Send us a quick email to let us know what you are doing or if you need assistance getting a project off the ground. Thanks for all you do to teach the next generation of skilled and safe Montana drivers!

We are here to help.  Call the Traffic Education Office at (406) 444-4432 or email Patti at pborneman@mt.gov or Fran at fpenner-ray@mt.gov.
