State Police campaign targets teen drivers

(Richmond, Va.) — A new State Police campaign aimed at teens attending Virginia schools is being launched this Christmas. It’s an effort to promote safe driving by teenagers during the holiday season. “Steer Into The New Year, Drive Responsibly” is an effort to reduce teen fatalities during what has become a high-risk period for young drivers. Last year in Virginia, drivers aged 15 to 20 were involved in 16 fatal crashes during December, a sharp increase over December 2015, when six teen driver-involved fatal crashes occurred.
