Subject: National Teen Driver Safety Week - October 18-24, 2020
National Teen Driver Safety Week (NTDSW) is a federally designated time each year to raise awareness of teen driver safety topics and to seek solutions to unnecessary teen deaths on the road. It occurs this year from October 18 through October 24, 2020. Let us come together and focus our attention once again on this serious issue.

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for adolescents and young adults in the United States, and many of these deaths are preventable.

Crashes and deaths occur because of any or all of the following:
  • A driver distracted by cell phone use and/or other passengers
  • A tired or fatigued driver
  • A driver experiencing strong emotions
  • A driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs
These young people were loved by their families – good kids full of dreams and hopes for long, meaningful lives. We all know of too many teen crashes resulting in death that have occurred in our own legislative districts.

Through this resolution we can recognize “National Teen Driver Safety Week” and encourage the people of Pennsylvania to engage and empower licensed teen drivers in the Commonwealth to become safe skilled drivers. Please join me in co-sponsoring this resolution.
