Driving teachers and traffic safety instructors from all over the country gathered in Hawaii at the ADTSEA annual meeting. Those in attendance had the opportunity to hear NHTSA Administrator David Strickland speak about the importance of driver training and education as well as graduated licensing.
Both issues are important to The Century Council. Our teen driver safety efforts have focused on ensuring on education and awareness for teen drivers, and we support legislation for strong and comprehensive licensing requirements for teen and novice drivers.
The Century Council was on site to present to the audience information about our underage drinking initiatives and the hardcore drunk driver project. Despite the progress that has been made to make our roadways safer, the hardcore drunk driver still accounts for a disproportionate share of alcohol-impaired driving fatalities each year. Our battle continues - there is more work to do. Let's work together to rid our highways of these dangerous drivers.
