This guide examines the importance and benefit of investing in peer-to-peer teen traffic safety programs as part of a broader strategic initiative. It identifies the essential elements of a peer-to-peer program determined
through research and discussion with an expert panel and others working with teens or in the teen driving and/or traffic safety arenas, and outlines why each is important. A compendium of teen led traffic safety
programs that incorporate all or many of the essential elements follows. These programs are benchmarks against which State Highway Safety Offices can assess their own programs or others they may be funding, or to help determine whether they have the capacity to build a program or invest in one that is already established. The document concludes with a list of resources that States and their partners may wish to consult for additional guidance in planning, implementing, and evaluating peer-to-peer teen traffic safety programs.
