This publication looks at what states are doing to address teen driver safety through strengthening Graduated Driver License (GDL) laws; ensuring law enforcement support for these laws; engaging parents and teens; improving driver education; and garnering consistent media coverage.

The featured initiatives were identified through a survey of State Highway Safety Offices conducted by GHSA in August 2011. Transportation safety consultant and former New Jersey State Highway Safety Office Director Pam Fischer researched and wrote the report, an and expert panel contribued their insights as well.
