New York Teen Safe Driving Coalition

We are a Coalition of more than 100 organizations committed to helping teens leverage the proven principles of Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL). We are affiliated with state and local government, law enforcement and public health agencies, traffic safety and injury prevention organizations, academia and businesses. We’re also teens, parents and crash victims.

While teen crashes and fatalities nationwide fell to record lows in 2010, our goal is zero -- no crashes, injuries or fatalities. Ensuring that teens survive the most dangerous time of their life is not just the responsibility of parents, police and school officials, but every citizen.
Led by Susan Pedo, a public affairs and communications consultant specializing in health and safety issues and an adjunct instructor at the University of Albany, State University of New York, our Coalition is working collaboratively to effect change in New York. We invite you to learn about our initiatives and to join us. There are no monthly meetings or membership dues; your only obligation is to help spread the word about New York's GDL program, which is one of the best in the nation.
