National Youth Traffic Safety Month

Monday, May 1 - Wednesday, May 31, 12:00 am

Global Youth Traffic Safety Month takes place in May every year. The month is sponsored by the National Organizations for Youth Safety (NOYS) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (N.H.T.S.A). They celebrate it as an annual awareness campaign that encourages youth organizations and youth, in general, to participate in traffic safety projects in their communities and promotes safe teen driving behavior. As part of the month-long campaign, teens and parents can access promotional materials and toolkits designed to help keep teens safe on the road. The month was originally called National Youth Traffic Safety Month. The day raises awareness and aims to inspire individual actions that can change the statistics of road traffic accidents by teens.
