Toyota Teen Drivingclose
We believe driver education shouldn’t stop once teens pass their driving test. That’s why Toyota has partnered with Discovery Education to create Toyota Teen Driver, an interactive website aimed at providing resources on safe driving for parents, educators, schools, and teens. For instance, teens can take the online challenge “Heads Up!” to get a virtual experience of the dangers of distracted driving. Players earn a chance to win a $5,000 scholarship prize from Toyota. In 2012 we had ten winners from eight states, including Florida, Georgia, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia.
Teachers are invited to participate in our “Educators’ Challenge” to develop a project-based lesson plan about safe driving. Those who create the best programs, like 2012 first place winner Erin Hattabaugh of Cleveland, Tennessee, and second place winner Carrie Shampoe of Clymer, New York, earn additional driver safety education programs for their communities. Other resources on the Toyota Teen Driver site include conversation starters, driving activities, and a guide to help parents coach their teen drivers and set good driving examples.
