Did you know that car accidents are the leading cause of death for teens in the US? More than 1 in 3 teenage deaths are in motor vehicle accidents.
Don’t be a statistic! The UPS Foundation offers a free national program on safe teen driving techniques that can will teach you the tips that will save your life.
UPS Drivers log more than 2 BILLION miles per year on the road and have learned a thing or two about safe driving with less than one crash per million miles driven. Now, that’s impressive!
Taught by 150 UPS employees trained as volunteer instructors, UPS Road Code teaches safe driving techniques to teens and helps them to “Drive Change” surrounding this important issue. The program focuses on different safety principles, from basic instruction to the consequences of risky behaviors such as talking on cell phones, texting or drinking while driving. Teens practice what they’ve learned on driving simulators, which feature a computer screen that serves as a windshield to the program’s interactive animation, a steering wheel and life-like gas and brake pedals. UPS Road Code is currently available free of charge in 52 Boys & Girls Clubs in 40 cities across the country.
