Parachute’s National Teen Driver Safety Week (NTDSW) is an annual campaign supported by Desjardins to build awareness of teen driver safety issues and to encourage community and youth involvement as part of the solution. Our 2020 theme: #SpeedIsNoGame.
Road crashes are the second-leading cause of death among young people in Canada. Young people are killed in crashes at a higher rate than any other age group under 80 years old.
Young drivers (ages 16 to 24) killed in a collision are more likely to be speeding at the time of the crash than other age group. Parachute NTDSW wants to help put a stop to these preventable deaths by bringing awareness to the serious issue of speeding among teens. NTDSW 2020 will also focus on the issues of drug-impaired, drunk, distracted and aggressive driving.
Join the conversation on social media, using the hashtags #SpeedIsNoGame, #NTDSW2020, and #KnowWhatImpairedMeans.
