Students at every Michigan high school have a chance to make a difference in their communities and help their fellow teens become better drivers by participating in this year’s Strive for a Safer Drive (S4SD) program.

S4SD is a joint effort between the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning (OHSP) and Ford Motor Company Fund. The goal of the initiative is to reduce traffic crashes within communities.

S4SD encourages teens to talk to other teens and community members about making safe driving choices. Schools will develop and implement a student-led, peer-to-peer traffic safety awareness campaign. Topics may include speeding, seat belts, pedestrian, bicyclist and passenger safety as well as impaired, distracted, night-time and winter driving.
