HPD YPAC Members Present Teen Driving Safety

Recently, members of the HPD Youth Police Advisory Council (YPAC) conducted the Teen Driver Safety (TDS) presentation at the Houston Chapter Status of Women Seminar at the Brentwood Baptist Church.

The Teen Driver Safety Program is sponsored by State Farm and provides information on the consequences and dangers of driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and distracted driving. It is a hands-on experience conducted in schools and public events across the city.

Motor vehicle crashes are the No 1 cause of death among teens in the United States according to State Farm Teen Driving Facts. These facts also tell us that 56% of all driving teens rely on their parents to learn how to drive. With that in mind, The TDS experience promotes peer-to-peer interaction while at the same time enhancing driving behaviors for parents.
