Just like the rest of the country, car crashes are the number one killer of teens in Georgia. Through our partnership with the Georgia Department of Transportation and State Farm, we know that distractions and seat belts are two of the riskiest behavior Georgia teens take behind the wheel. This school year, TDS is targeting several counties that are experiencing the highest rate of teen crashes, injuries, and fatalities. These counties are shown. You can also see the stats from your county here.
If you are a Georgia school and want to get involved, at no cost, please contact Stacey Tisdale at [email protected] or 210-321-1232. We have also partnered with Safe Kids Georgia, experts in the field of injury prevention, that are able to assist you.
