We are a Coalition of more than 40 individuals and organizations committed to helping teens leverage the proven principles of Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL). We are affiliated with state and local government, law enforcement and public health agencies, traffic safety and injury prevention organizations, academia and businesses. We are also teens, parents and crash victims.
While teen crashes and fatalities continue to fall nationwide, with teen driver fatalities decreasing six percent between 2011 and 2012, our goal is zero -- no crashes, injuries or fatalities. Ensuring teens survive the most dangerous time of their lives is not just the responsibility of parents, law enforcement and school officials, but of every citizen.
Led by Cathy Gillen, a highway safety consultant, our Coalition is working collaboratively to effect change in Maryland. We invite you to learn about our initiatives and to join us. There are no monthly meetings or membership dues; your only obligation is to help spread the word about GDL and safe teen driving.
