National Teen Driver Safety Week 2016: October 16-22

Thanks to the continued support of State Farm, Parachute is excited to announce the fourth annual National Teen Driver Safety Week (NTDSW) in Canada. NTDSW is a week designed to make the public aware of teen driver safety issues, and encourages community and youth involvement as part of the solution. National Teen Driver Safety Week will run from October 16-22, 2016.

Great momentum was achieved in 2015. Parachute and our community partners hosted over 500 events, and we are looking for even greater engagement in this year’s program. Please email for more information and how you can participate in 2016.


Your NTDSW toolkit will include one ballot box (for the Positive Ticketing Blitz), 100 positive tickets, 100 pencils, 100 screen cleaner keychains, and 3 boxes of jumbo sidewalk chalk (for the Parking Lot Chalk Makeover).
