CRTSC Emphasis Area | Young Drivers

Teen and young adult drivers have a higher risk than other age groups of being involved in serious crashes across the United States, and that is unfortunately no different in South Louisiana.  An emphasis area with goals to reduce fatalities and injuries among this age group was established with strategies that bridge gaps between universities, local governments, law enforcement, and driving schools.  The coalition is working to establish community-based classroom awareness training to parents of soon-to-be drivers to encourage engaged, safe and responsible driving.  The coalition is also researching the feasibility of a Graduated Driver Licensing Decal program for novice drivers.  Based on data from other states, legislation to identify these types of drivers leads to a decrease in young driver crashes.  Crashes involving university students often also involve drug and/or alcohol impairment, so the coalition is researching potential alternatives that may include ride share programs and after-hour bus systems.
