Teen Driving Partners
The Allstate Foundation is working hard to keep America’s youngest drivers safe on the roadways. But we can’t do it alone. The Allstate Foundation works with several national partners to help further our goals. Read below for more information on The Allstate Foundation’s Teen Safe Driving partners.
American Academy of Pediatrics is an organization of 60,000 pediatricians committed to the attainment of optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents, and young adults.

The National Safety Council saves lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, in homes and communities, and on the roads through leadership, research, education and advocacy. By 2014, the council will save an additional 10,000 lives and prevent 1 million injuries. To achieve this goal, we will continue to partner with businesses, elected officials and the public to make an impact in areas such as distracted driving, teen driving, workplace safety, and safety in the home and community. The Allstate Foundation and the National Safety Council have teamed up to build 10 state coalitions – each working to reduce the number of teens killed in car crashes each year and help educate the public on the value of stronger teen driving laws.
