Impact Teen Drivers has been the leading distracted driving education and prevention organization in California since 2008. ITD understands that teen distracted driving is a complex issue. Motor vehicle collisions have been the leading cause of serious injury and fatality for teens for decades. Distracted driving is not solely an issue of phone use. ITD’s educational programs and resources emphasize that a distraction is not a specific object, but the choice to engage in a behavior behind the wheel. ITD’s overall program is an integrated, multidimensional approach that reaches teens, parents/guardians, and other influencers of teens, including CHP PIOs, health professionals, and educators.

Teen culture is a moving target and staying relevant is paramount. Focus Groups are an important tool ITD uses to ensure that the programs and materials feel modern and are well-received by teens and other stakeholders. By continually evaluating our efforts through Pre and Post Event Surveys, we ensure our messaging remains effective in positively changing perception of behavior control, self-assessment of knowledge and skills, and behavior intentions. ITD maintains a database of survey data for analysis.

Surveys are validated, evidence-based instruments. ITD team members input survey data throughout the year for review periodically, and full analysis is completed on an annual basis. ITD curricula and surveys are anchored in a research-backed psychological theory, the Theory of Planned Behavior. Additionally, ITD’s messaging centers around positive community norming, which emphasizes the positive choices that teens, parents, and community members can make. Research indicates that gore, scare tactics, and fear appeals are not effective for long term change in actual behavior. Instead, ITD’s messaging connects on an emotional level and provides concrete strategies. ITD operates not solely from an “awareness” standpoint; ITD’s award-winning programs and materials work to change attitudes and behaviors with the goal of a sustained shift in the driving culture to one that is distraction-free.

Through years of coalition building, ITD has solid relationships with CHP Area Offices, school districts, youth agencies, health professionals, and other teen traffic safety stakeholders across the state. ITD California Education Outreach Coordinators schedule and facilitate School Presentations, Train the Trainer Workshops, and Community Events, meeting the requests and needs of communities and partners throughout California. ITD California Education Outreach Coordinators have clearly stated workplans and metrics that include dedicated outreach and education to serve all of California’s diverse population, including rural and urban areas, historically underserved communities, Spanish speaking audiences, and Title I schools serving low-income students and families. ITD California Education Outreach Coordinators are adept at providing relevant information to the community they are addressing at the time, which is vital to equitably serve a state as large and diverse as California. For example, within the evidence-based

What Do You Consider Lethal? teen program, a second Personal Story is thoughtfully chosen by the facilitator, one that will resonate with the participants. The Personal Story library includes stories from families of diverse backgrounds and from urban, suburban, and rural regions.
