Our goal: Zero Teen Fatalities

Some people believe reaching zero fatalities on Utah roads is an impossible goal. But when you think of your friends and family, how many is it acceptable to lose? We hope zero. And that’s why we’ve made it our goal in Utah. The Don’t Drive Stupid program strives to put an end to traffic-related teen deaths by educating young drivers about the importance of being safe behind the wheel. We invite you to join the cause and start saving lives.

PARENT NIGHT WEBINARS

Parent involvement is key to preventing crashes among new drivers. In order to help parents make a positive impact on their teen’s learning experience, we created Zero Fatalities Parent Nights. For more than a decade, parents have given overwhelmingly positive reviews to these 60-minute presentations addressing some of the top behaviors teen drivers need to know. They help teens establish safe driving habits and remind parents to be better examples, so we can all reach our goal of Zero Fatalities.

Previously, these presentations have been in-school presentations, but to accommodate schools during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have online options available for those who are not able to meet in large groups.

Zero Fatalities Parent Night webinars are now available every Monday and Wednesday evenings. Once you’ve chosen the date that works for parents and teens to view the live video conference together, click the date to register and a confirmation and a password will be sent to your email. We recommend adding this appointment to your calendar.

When the presentation ends, a survey link will appear where you will input your student’s name and school. This information is required in order to receive credit for attending the presentation. This report will be given to the driver ed teacher.

Real Stories. Real Impacts

By sharing the memories of those lost on Utah roads and learning from their experiences, we can honor their lives and choose to live ourselves.

It’s easy to ignore a statistic, but when it comes to your own life, or the life of a loved one, even one fatality is too many. In order to teach the importance of Zero, and how we can get there, we host several events throughout the year with parents and students both welcome.
