National Foundation for Teen Safe Driving is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit charitable organization dedicated to reducing the number of deaths and injuries resulting from automobile crashes by promoting safe driving and passenger safety, through leadership, education and awareness.
Did you know that 87 percent of fatal crashes involving new
drivers are caused by distractions from cell phones, iPods, loud music, putting on makeup, eating and even friends?
Car crashes are the #1 cause of death among teenagers. Learning to drive safely takes effort, patience and practice.
19 percent of US fatalities are related to young driver crashes
involving youth between the ages of 15 and 20?
Parents play an important role in their child's driving education. Where does a parent begin? Start with the Safe Driving Promise.
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, in the United States, the fatal crash rate per mile driven for 16-19 year-olds is nearly 3 times the rate for drivers ages 20 and over.

It has been brought to our attention that the software application that processes online donations for NFTSD has been used without our knowledge or consent by individual(s) in possession of credit card information to process fraudulent charges. Apparently the scheme involves stolen credit card numbers being processed to authorize $1 charges. Once the charge is approved, the fraudster knows that the credit card number is valid and can use that card to make other purchases. Upon learning of these activities we took immediate action to add additional layers of security to guard against future instances. We are in the process of refunding each transaction and hope to have this task completed soon. In the meantime if you notice a $1 charge on your credit card from NFTSD we suggest that you immediately alert your credit card company and check your account for other unauthorized charges. We regret any inconvenience this has caused and can assure you that we have taken appropriate steps as a result of this malicious scheme.
