Michigan Program Seeks To Have Teens Encourage Each Other To Be Better Drivers

The Strive For a Safer Driver program is a partnership between the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning and Ford Driving Skills for Life. Kari Arend is with the Office of Highway Safety Planning and tells WHMI that each participating school will receive $1,000 for students to create traffic-safety campaigns to educate their fellow classmates about distracted driving, seat belt use, speeding, underage drinking/impaired driving or winter driving.
