Get Behind National Teen Driver Safety Week 

National Teen Driver Safety Week (NTDSW) -- October 17-23, 2010 is dedicated to raising awareness and seeking

solutions to unnecessary teen deaths on the road. Established by Congress in 2007 and held annually on the third week 

of each October, its goal is to focus the country’s attention on this serious issue.

This year's theme is reducing distractions. Distractions, including friends as passengers, are the No. 1 reason new drivers

crash, and car crashes are the No. 1 cause of death for adolescents.
