Parachute takes action
Raising the profile of road safety for teens during NTDSW
NTDSW matters because you matter
Parachute's President & CEO, Louise Logan, talks about why National Teen Driver Safety Week Matters to her. www.parachutecanada.org/ntdsw
What is National Teen Driver Safety Week?
Alex Kelly, Senior Coordinator, Programs at Parachute explains why teen driver safety is a huge issue in Canada. While young people only make up 13% of licensed drivers, they account for approximately one quarter of all road-related injuries and fatalities. www.parachutecanada.org/ntdsw
Stop the Clock
In Canada, preventable injuries kill more youth than all other causes combined. Canada incurs an annual economic burden of $20 billion per year. Parachute’s Stop The Clock raises awareness of preventable injuries, and aims to mitigate the staggering impact that injuries have on Canadians.
