Every year, approximately 250 people will lose their life in a Missouri traffic crash involving a teen driver, ranking it the 10th deadliest state in the United States. These crashes are preventable. Lack of proper safety, ignorance of the rules and overconfidence are the main reasons these accidents happen.
Driver education at the high school level is often not available or individualized enough for teen drivers to fully grasp the importance of safe driving. New drivers may pass the classes; however, they are not fully prepared for what they face when driving in the real world.
The Missouri Department of Transportation along with local law enforcement, traffic safety businesses and corporate sponsors have teamed up to Drive for Tomorrow to high schools in the St. Louis region to increase teen driving safety.
Drive for Tomorrow supplements and reinforces safe driving and behind-the-wheel instruction for driver’s education students. The event uses presentations and active, hands-on participation to deliver important safe-driving information to students.
