Traffic collisions have been the leading cause of death for American teens for generations. The California Highway Patrol in collaboration with Impact Teen Drivers is dedicated to reversing this pervasive yet 100% preventable crisis. The partnership between CHP and Impact Teen Drivers (ITD) started in 2007. ITD and CHP officers put on presentations to teen drivers and their parents, presentations to high school students and at community outreach events, at Train the Trainer events, and training events for families affected by a teen distracted driving fatality.
Our mission is to change the culture of distracted and reckless driving by saving lives through research-based education. "What Do You Consider Lethal" is an educational program which confronts the dangers and consequences of reckless and distracted driving. CHP and ITD work to promulgate this message statewide through an evidence-based curriculum.
