The National Safety Council is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to save lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, in homes and communities and on the road through leadership, research, education and advocacy.
Providing parents of teen drivers with knowledge and tools is an important part of keeping our teens safer on the road. Even medical professionals have a role in keeping our teens safer. That’s why this prescription pad was created by the Maryland Teen Safe Driving Coalition and The American Academy of Pediatrics in partnership with the National Safety Council and The Allstate Foundation. It can be used for any state and it features safe driving messages for pediatricians to share with parents of teen drivers. It also encourages parents to look up the GDL laws of their state to learn more.
