The Georgia Department of Transportation is launching  a new online resource for teen drivers and their parents. The  Web site, “Teen Driving Safety 101,”, provides information on driving laws, safety tips and travel information to help teens stay safe behind the wheel.
“Vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among American teens,” said Georgia DOT Commissioner Vance C. Smith Jr. “The department is dedicated to reducing teen crashes in Georgia, and part of that mission involves ensuring that Georgia teens have the information they need to become safe, responsible drivers.
“With school activities, homecoming dances and football games all on their schedules, it is important that teens and their families be able to get the information they need quickly and easily,” Smith added.
The site was developed in partnership with the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, the Department of Driver Services and Riverdale High School’s technology team. The site includes links to other government agencies and sites with information about teen driving laws and travel information.
The Web site launched Oct. 20 as part of National Teen Driver Safety Week, designated by Congress in 2007 as the third week in October.
