Global Youth Traffic Safety Month
Each May, youth from across the country unite during Global Youth Traffic Safety Month to focus on traffic related crashes, which are the leading cause of death for teenagers.
Reality Check is designed to inspire conversations between teens and adults on the dangers of underage drinking and driving. State-based fact sheets on underage drinking and driving trends are also available.
Seat Belts Save is NOYS’ first national seat belt challenge designed to educate teen drivers about the dangers of riding in a car without wearing a seat belt, and increase the number of teens who regularly wear a seat belt while driving or riding in a car.
The Youth Interactive Traffic Safety Lab is an event held in October during Teen Driver Safety Week where teens have the opportunity to experience hands-on activities at an outdoor venue to relay information about: Auto Maintenance, Distractions, Impaired Driving, Inclement Weather, Motorcycle Safety, Pedestrian & Bicycle Safety, Railroad Tracks, Seat Belt Usage, Sharing the Road, Teen Passengers, Work Zones, and more.
