Teen Driver Safety

Florida’s statewide Teen Driver Safety program targets teen drivers age 15 to 19, by coaching and empowering them to educate their peers, parents and communities about teen safe driving. Topics include using safety belts, driving within the speed limit and based on road conditions, not driving impaired or distracted, and the crash risk associated with driving with multiple teen passengers. Selected projects address teen driving issues from several angles, and include both statewide projects and local efforts to address problems in specific geographic areas.
