Developing Safer Passengers through a School-Based Injury Prevention Program | Safety Science
This 2012 study from Safety Science found that motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death among young people. There is scope for prevention approaches that focus on passengers’ safety. Student participants of the prevention program Skills for Preventing Injury in Youth (SPIY) reported fewer passenger risks. SPIY students were also more likely to protect their friends from underage driving. School-based, passenger-focused strategies may reduce passenger risk and injury.
