Montana Teen Driver Safety Day – Tuesday, October 15

Sunday, September 29, 2013, 11:19 am

Montana's Teen Driver Safety Day is the third Tuesday in October and National Teen Driver Safety Week is October 20-26.  Proclaimed by the Montana State Legislature in 2009, Teen Driver Safety Day brings teens, community leaders, educators, and parents together to take action with positive, life-affirming messages to help prevent young driver crashes, the leading cause of death for teens.

Visit the OPI’s Traffic Education webpage to download our new Montana Teen Driver Safety Day packet to help your school plan activities to increase the safety of our teen drivers and their passengers.  Also available are links to teen driver safety toolkits, peer-to-peer distraction awareness campaigns, and community outreach materials as well as contests for scholarships and prizes.

If you have ideas you'd like to share or will celebrate Montana Teen Driver Safety Day at your school, please contact the Traffic Education Office.
