Task Force To Focus On Teen Driving Through 2012

December 9, 2011, 1:42 PM

PIERR, SD - South Dakota officials plan to spend the next year reviewing statistics and laws affecting teenage drivers to prepare recommendations for potential changes to the 2013 Legislature.

The Task Force on Teen Driving Safety was created by the last Legislature and will start its assignment with a Thursday meeting in Fort Pierre.

The group will examine teen-driving data, including statistics on traffic citations, crashes, injuries and deaths; study driver-education data available to teens; and examine policies that might thwart efforts to improve teen-driving safety.

Director of Highway Safety Lee Axdahl says the goal is to get an accurate picture of teen driving because too many young drivers are involved in crashes that result in injuries or death.

The task force is funded by a federal highway-safety grant.
