About this Event

Parents,

You are invited! You are welcome to bring your teen driver with you.

First Impact is a 90 – minute evidence-based traffic safety program that educates parents about Missouri’s GDL law. The goal of First Impact is to reduce new driver crashes and eliminate 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

First Impact provides the tools parents need to monitor, coach and support their new teen driver. First Impact features a video and discussion to promote the importance of parents and teens working together to eliminate teen crashes, injuries, and fatalities.

Ensuring parents understand the risks and responsibilities associated with driving is essential in preventing teen driving tragedies.

The program is delivered by Law Enforcement Speakers and Facilitators 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.

Speakers:

  • SGT John Lueckenhoff, Missouri State Highway Patrol
  • Deana Tucker Dothage, University of Missouri School of Medicine, Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
