High School Driver Says Drive Safe, Get There, Have Fun
Palm City, FL -- September 21, 2004 - The Florida
Drivers Association today announced the launch of www.HighSchoolDriver.com
a new website dedicated to driver safety and education for teens. The website takes a unique approach - mix the serious messages about
drinking and driving, and wearing a seatbelt with topics teens thirst for like music, cars, clothes, sports, and other topics.
The harsh reality is that in 2002, driver's age 15 to 20 accounted for 23% of the fatal crashes
- that's 6,322 young lives lost. But this group only makes up 6.4% of the total driving population. These numbers
illustrate that young drivers are three to 4 times more likely to die in a car crash. Most these deaths can be avoided
by eliminating drunk driving, getting teen drivers to wear seatbelts, and other common sense steps. www.HighSchoolDriver.com
addresses these issues in an environment designed to attract teens.
The website is packed with stories related to driver safety, cars, music, high school life, and offers courses for
new drivers getting their learner permit. Much of the content is presented in the format of guides that walk a teen
through things like getting their license and what
to do in an accident. Stories focused on High school life include a feature on today's high school cliques,
rock and pop music , and a directory of high schools and their web sites.
The new website was designed with input from a group of high school students, some of which have already contributed
to the site about getting their learner permit and friends they have lost
to traffic accidents. High school students from around the country are encouraged to submit stories for publication.
