Tennessee Coalition

We are a Coalition of more than 50 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’re also teens, parents and crash victims.

While teen crashes and fatalities nationwide fell to record lows in 2010, 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 Kristi J Townes, Director of Prevention at JACOA(Jackson Area Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependency), our Coalition is working collaboratively to effect change in Tennessee. 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 Tennessee's GDL program.
