National Teen Driver Safety Week (NTDSW) is ongoing this week, running from Oct. 22 to Oct. 28. In a press release announcing the awareness week, Parachute Canada says NTDSW bring important messages about driver safety to Canadian communities.

NTDSW is a week-long awareness campaign with a focus on public education. Parachute Canada says the aim of the initiative is to engage communities and make them part of the solution. Throughout National Teen Driver Safety Week, the organization connects with communities through conversations and demonstrations:

Thanks to the continued support of Desjardins, Parachute is excited to announce the sixth annual National Teen Driver Safety Week (NTDSW) in Canada. NTDSW is designed to drive public awareness of teen driver safety issues and encourages community and youth involvement as part of the solution. National Teen Driver Safety Week will run from October 22 to 28, 2018.”

Parachute wants 2018’s week to more successful than last year’s excellent NTDSW. During 2017’s event, Parachute hosted hundreds of events nationwide. Now, the organization says it wants even more engagement with communities.

To help that goal, NTDSW 2018 will focus on several hot topic driver safety issues. Event will invluve discussions on impaired, drugged, distracted, and speeding/aggressive driving.

Community Participation

Throughout the week, project leaders will collaborate with police forces, business partners and local schools to communicate the message of NTDSW. Parachute Canada is running the event under the hashtag #KnowWhatImpairedMeans and wants parents and teens to share the banner.
