National Teen Driver Safety Week 2017 Resources


National Teen Driver Safety Week: October 15 to 21, 2017

Parachute is excited to announce the fifth annual National Teen Driver Safety Week (NTDSW) in Canada. NTDSW is designed to drive public awareness 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 15 to 21, 2017. Great momentum was achieved in 2016. Parachute and our community partners hosted over 500 events, and we are looking for even greater engagement in this year’s program.

This year, our messaging will focus on the issues of drugged, distracted, impaired and aggressive driving (including speeding). We are excited to work with local schools, police and partners to implement activities in communities across the country, including Positive Ticketing Blitzes and Parking Lot Chalk Makeovers.

We will also encourage teens, parents and community partners to join the discussion on social media, using the hashtag #GetHomeSafe

Community toolkits

Your NTDSW toolkit will include a ballot box (for the Positive Ticketing Blitz), positive tickets, postcards, pens, jumbo sidewalk chalk (for the Parking Lot Chalk Makeover) and swag bracelets.
