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.
Our team leaders are made up of concerned drivers, nonprofit leaders, privately-held business owners, and public-entity members. The Capital Region Transportation Safety Coalition's Young Drivers Team Leaders are listed below:
Crystal Pichon, Lexlee's Kids
Senior Trooper Michael Talley, LSP
