On July 28, 2020, First Impact will have its first ZOOM presentation!
First Impact is a 90 – minute evidence-based traffic safety program that educates parents and new and soon-to-be teen drivers about Missouri’s Graduated Driver License law. Agencies and safety partners who serve parents and their teens are also invited to join the presentation..
The goal of First Impact is to eliminate new driver crashes and reduce resulting injuries and fatalities, by increasing parental awareness and enforcement of Missouri’s Graduated Driver License 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
The program is delivered by trained facilitators and law enforcement officers who coach parents by presenting key facts and proven strategies to help parents lower their teens’ crash risk by utilizing the Missouri GDL law. The statewide program is available free of charge. Funding is provided by MoDOT’s Highway Safety & Traffic Division and State Farm Insurance.
