Summary of an Evidence-Based Teen Driver Safety Program-Checkpoints™

This handout highlights the Checkpoints™ program, an evidence-based teen driver safety program that involves an interactive parent-teen driving agreement. All materials are available for free for all states at youngdriverparenting.org. Checkpoints was originally developed by Dr. Bruce Simons-Morton of the National Institute of Child Health & Human Development, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. The program was adapted for the Web by the faculty of the University of Michigan Injury Prevention Center in two projects supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH).
