IMPLEMENTATION GUIDE FOR ESTABLISHING A YOUTH TRAFFIC SAFETY COUNCIL

Given the significant overinvolvement of young drivers in highway accidents and the important influence that young people have on the behavior of their peers, an organizational framework for youth activity in highway safety is greatly needed. The Guide was prepared specifically for State and local officials interested in establishing such a framework. The emphasis of the program recommended is on youth action at the local level with the State providing support mainly through a network of communications and materials resources. The Guide contains detailed recommendations on organization, the extent of State personnel and monetary support, State and regional conferences, and specific activities that might be undertaken by local units. The recommendations are meant to allow a fairly wide latitude of application, depending upon the needs and desires of individual States.
