Parent Night / Truck Smart
Parent involvement is key to preventing crashes among new drivers. Zero Fatalities Parent Night presentations help parents make a positive impact on their teen’s learning experience. 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.
Parent Night Presentations & Webinars
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. To teach the importance of Zero Fatalities and how we can get there, we host several events throughout the year with parents and students both welcome.

Did you know that approximately ¼ of all vehicles on Utah roads are large trucks? Nationally, over 75% of auto vs. truck crashes are caused by negligent driving on the part of the auto driver. By understanding just how massive these trucks are, how large their blind spots are, and how much room they need to operate and come to a stop, our roads and highways can be a much safer place for everyone.

Utah's GDL Laws
Graduated driver licensing allows new drivers to learn driving skills over time and gain the experience needed to become safe drivers. Teens receive a “limited driver license” and have certain driving restrictions such as no night-time driving, limitations on who can be in the vehicle with them and the amount of supervised driving time they must have before getting a full license.
