 Parents and guardians, are you approaching the intersection of teenagers and driving? Driving is a huge responsibility and knowing how to help your teen become a safe, new driver is often difficult. But First Impact is here to give you some tools to make that road a bit easier.

First Impact:

  • Green City High School
  • Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2019
  • 6:30 – 8 p.m.

First Impact is a 90-minute evidence-based traffic safety program that educates parents and guardians about Missouri’s Graduated Drivers License (GDL) law. The goal of First Impact is to reduce new driver crashes, resulting injuries and fatalities, by increasing the awareness of parents and guardians and enforcement of Missouri’s GDL law.

Objectives of the program are to increase:

  • Awareness of teen driving risks
  • Understanding of Missouri’s GDL law
  • GDL monitoring and enforcement at home
  • Importance of being a positive role model

First Impact provides the tools parents and guardians need to monitor, coach and support their new teen driver. First Impact features a video and discussion to promote the importance of parents and guardians working together with their teen driver to reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities.

In working to prevent teen driving tragedies, it is essential that parents and guardians understand the risks and responsibilities associated with their teen driving.

The program is delivered by trained GDL coaches who coach parents and guardians by presenting key facts and proven strategies to help parents lower their teens’ crash risk by utilizing the Missouri GDL law.
