Dear Fellow Parent
Organized by: split secnd
The statistics are horrific. 21 Teens are KILLED on the roads every DAY in the USA. Teens crash because they are inexperienced. They are unaware of the dangers of being a new driver on busy roads. Distracted Driving is becoming an epidemic. 7 of the top 10 deadliest driving days of the year for teens occur in June, July and August. Nearly two out of three teen crash deaths that involve 16-year-old drivers happen when a new driver has one or more teen passengers.
But only 25% of parents have had a serious talk with their kids about driving.
Why is more being done to educate the parents and the teens? Because the resources that are currently out there are statistically dense, not particularly engaging and memorable, and not visually frank enough to capture the teens attention and motivate change.
We are raising funds to produce a Public Safety Announcement that is only focussed on Teen Drivers. We want to produce a short film that truly captures the teens, the parents and the carers and provides them with a platform to have an informed conversation about developing good life long driving habits.
