 Bronte High School is proud to announce their affiliation with "Teens In The Driver Seat". 

"Teens In The Driver Seat (TDS)" is a program started by the Texas Department of Transportation because teenage deaths related to car crashes have reached epidemic proportions. Their statistics show:

  • About 5,000 teens die in car wrecks every year in America; 400 in Texas
  • Teens are involved in 50% more crashes in Texas than the U.S. average.
  • $41 billion problem in U.S.; $3.5 billion problem in Texas.

TDS is using peer-to-peer education to reach teenagers and warn them of the dangers of driving.  The focus is on lesser-known risks common in young driver fatalities. The top 5 risks are:

  • Driving at night
  • Distractions--such as cellphones and too many teen passengers
  • Speeding
  • Not wearing a seat belt
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol

TDS is working and growing: 

  • Over 100 schools across Texas are now participating
  • Risk awareness levels are improving by up to 200%
  • Seat belt use up 11%
  • Cellphone/texting (while driving) down 30% (at TDS Program schools)
  • Addresses a real problem and offers positive PR opportunities and constant peer reminding of driving safe.
