Organized in 2003, “Drive for Life: The National Safe Driving Test and Initiative” is an ambitious driver education and outreach effort made possible through the collaboration of partners who share a commitment to improving safety on America’s roads.

Last year, the partnership generated national headlines with the results of its Mason-Dixon poll that showed 9 out of 10 American drivers admitted to knowingly and routinely engaging in careless driving behavior and dangerous driving practices. The group also produced Drive for Life: The National Safe Driving Test which was broadcast across the United States to remind motorists of the real hazards associated with modern-day driving.

This year, the partnership continues its efforts by targeting “The 101 Deadliest Days on the Road and How to Survive Them,” the period from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend when thousands of predictable, preventable deaths occur and by offering strategies to prevent them.
