Improve Traffic Safety through Adolescent Education and Awareness

Vehicular crashes are the number one killer of teens in the US today, more so than suicide and drug overdose combined. SADD is the national leader in teen traffic safety education and awareness. For the last 34 years, SADD’s programs, awareness campaigns, and advocacy efforts have been primarily focused on reducing the number of teens injured and killed behind the wheel. Together with our partners, we’ve made great progress in doing so. However, our work will never be complete. Each year, we have a new group of young drivers behind the wheel who require education programming, awareness campaigns, and a full community effort to help them stay safe when they get behind the wheel. Our traffic safety efforts are focused on four main areas:

  • Distracted Driving: Learn how SADD works with teens to educate them on the dangers of distracted driving. Learn more…
  • Impaired Driving: Not just illegal, impaired driving is the cause of more than 16,000 deaths and over one million injuries a year. See the staggering statistics and help prevent impaired driving. Learn more…
  • Seat Belts: Seat belts save lives. We must continue to educate our teens and their parents on the importance of seat belts and encourage stringent law enforcement. Learn more…
  • Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL): The use of GDL licenses proven to reduce the number of crashes by inexperienced drivers. Learn more…
