DRIVE SMART Virginia Coalition for Safe Driving

(formerly Virginia Coalition for Distraction-Free Driving)

Mission:  To raise awareness about the importance of safe driving; including distraction free driving, sharing the road, fleet safety, vulnerable road users, and sober driving through various strategies in order to prevent crashes and injuries on Virginia roadways.

The Coalition will set goals and advance Safe Driving awareness by:

I. Developing a diverse coalition of interested parties.

II. Leveraging the existing activities around already established awareness months to further raise visibility about the issues.

III. Engaging with and supporting the 2017 Safe Driving Summit. 

IV. Sponsoring and supporting teen, community and workplace education initiatives and opportunities. 

V. Identifying and working with subject matter champions to forward legislation in the Virginia General Assembly.
