YOUR SUPPORT IS WHAT STANDS BETWEEN 4,000 TEENS AND DEATH

SUPPORT NATIONAL GDL LAWS

This country is living with a national epidemic that claims an average of 11 teen lives every single day.

States with strong Graduated Driver Licensing laws have reduced fatal crashes among 16-year-old drivers by almost 40%. Key national GDL laws from the STANDUP Act are now part of pending legislation in Congress. These proposed laws could help stop the #1 killer of teen drivers in America.
