MADD® shares toolkit for Teen Driver Safety Week
Earning a driver’s license is a first step toward freedom and independence for America’s teens. National Teen Driver Safety Week is Oct. 17-23, and it’s a good time for parents to, once again, stress to their children the importance of safe driving habits.
Peers also have a powerful influence on each other. Just as teens can be influenced by others’ negative choices, they can also be impacted by the positive choices their peers make. That’s why Mothers Against Drunk Driving® (MADD) is calling upon teens to take a stand and be the positive example for their friends. The organization offers a toolkit specifically for teens to encourage them to use their power to keep themselves and their friends safe.
Amica Insurance supports MADD in its mission, and, this year, has partnered with the organization to support its Power of You(th)® program. The program features interactive presentations delivered by certified facilitators to help youth explore the real, short- and long-term impacts of drinking underage, including how it can damage developing brains and have long-lasting social consequences.
