Opportunity to participate in WTSC's teen driver safety program

It’s no surprise that peer pressure is a powerful force in the life of a teenager. Since car crashes are a leading cause of injury and death for young people in the U.S., there’s a new peer-to-peer program in Washington called Teens in the Driver Seat® (TDS) that uses peer pressure as a positive influence by having teens lead the program and spread awareness about teen traffic safety at their schools.

This student-led program focuses on the top five dangers of teen driving to help teens develop safer driving habits and avoid crashes. TDS helps teens build leadership skills and can be run by any club or group in a high school or junior high school.

The TDS program is free to join, and each school will receive an educational toolkit for campus outreach - all at no cost to the schools - thanks to the Washington Traffic Safety Commission (WTSC) and State Farm. Your students can also earn up to $1,300 cash for your school or organization, simply by participating in our program!

Any club/group advisor may sign up and claim their free program kit. Join WTSC today and help Washington reach its goal of zero deaths on our roadways. For more details, send an email to Christine Yager
