We’re excited to announce that our Teen Safe Driving television campaign has won two #Telly Awards!
The spot features a mother and teen daughter discussing important safety features and smart driving habits.
For the official public launch of NCAST, the focus is on promoting awareness of safety issues specific to younger motorists.
Teen drivers are especially at risk on the roads, with vehicle crashes the leading cause of death in America among those under 21.
The inexperience and impulsiveness of teen drivers is a significant reason for their high crash rates, making important the safety features of the vehicles they drive as well as getting plenty of supervised driving practice.
Drive Sober This Labor Day, and Every Day
During the Labor Day holiday period, we typically see an increase in drunk-driving deaths — and that’s why you’ll likely see more law enforcement on the roads. Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, which runs from August 17-September 5, aims to educate people about the dangers and consequences of driving drunk.

Consider these common sense precautions:
Before drinking, plan a safe and sober ride home.
Don’t let someone get behind the wheel if they’ve been drinking.
If you’re hosting a gathering, make sure all your guests have a sober ride home.
If you see an impaired driver, call 911.
And always wear your seat belt — it’s your best defense against impaired drivers.
