Peer-to-Peer Teen Traffic Safety Program Guide

P2P Guide

As traffic crashes remain the leading cause of death for teens and young adults, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA's) "Peer-to-Peer Teen Traffic Safety Program Guide," prepared by GHSA, examines the components of successful peer-to-peer programs.

Peer-to-Peer programs, in which young adults identify a traffic safety problem in their school or community and take action to address it, offer young leaders the opportunity to not only formulate but also implement and evaluate a plan to help their peers stay safe on the road. The guide, authored by national teen safe driving expert and GHSA consultant Pam Fischer, outlines eight success indicators for peer-to-peer programs determined by working with an expert panel of researchers, advocates, youth organization leaders and young adults. The publication also includes a compendium of youth-led traffic safety programs that incorporate all or many of these success indicators, along with resources to help states plan, implement and evaluate peer-to-peer initiatives.
