Featured Activities

Welcome to ReduceTNCrashes! This is the first activity we recommend every school complete at the beginning of each new school year, whether you are new to the program or have been part of the program for years. Our Activation Activity ensures your school has the supplies it needs to spread the latest traffic safety information and raise awareness about safe driving practices and the Reduce Teen Crashes campaign.

The dangers of speeding are real. According to Tennessee’s Integrated Traffic Analysis Network (TITAN), there were nearly 23,000 speeding-related crashes in Tennessee from 2017 to 2019. Thirty-six percent of those crashes involved drivers between the ages of 18 and 24 years old. The Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) strives to reduce serious injuries and fatal crashes by educating the public on safe driving behaviors.

Sign your grandparents up for TDOT’s Yellow DOT Program. The Tennessee Yellow DOT Program is designed to provide first responders with an individual’s medical information in the event of an emergency on Tennessee’s roadways. The information can mean the difference between “life and death” in the “Golden Hour” immediately following a serious incident. Participants in the program will receive a Yellow DOT decal, a Yellow DOT folder, and a medical information sheet; a personalized photo will be taken and placed on the sheet. The participant will complete the medical information sheet which consists of their emergency contact information, medical information, recent surgeries, hospital preferences, current medications, insurance, and physicians’ information. This information will be the sole responsibility of the participant and should remain in the glove compartment inside the yellow folder provided. The Yellow DOT decal will be placed on the driver’s side rear window of their vehicle. There is no cost associated with participating in this program. For more information on the Yellow DOT Program visit the Tennessee Department of Transportation’s website here.

The purpose of this project is to promote highway safety among teens and focus on seatbelt compliance. This project is also intended to be directed by the teens themselves, promoting leadership, development, and ownership of highway safety issues.
