Why is Traffic Safety Important for Youth?

Driving a vehicle requires significant practice and skill to master. In fact, it takes 1000 hours behind the wheel to see an improvement in skill in new drivers.

While new drivers are learning these skills, they are at a higher risk to crash and to be injured or killed.

Several behaviors can be encouraged to keep our youth safe on the roads. These training modules focus on different positive behaviors that can be learned. Encouraging youth to learn and practice these behaviors will decrease their risk on the road.

What is included in these Resources?

There are five community modules included on this website:

The learning modules were developed for easy implementation in a community group setting.

  • They can be lead by high school students or adults who are willing to prepare the session.
  • All the resources are included - you may have to prepare copies or gather a few common items to complete the task.
  • Each module has a PowerPoint Presentation, a detailed module outline for the session leader and a list of required materials.
  • The modules are each approximately 1 hour long. They can easily be shortened to fit into a shorter time slot.
  • A list of resources is also included for further information on the topic.

How to use these Resources

Our wish is for these resources to be used in communities all across Alberta to help keep our youth safe on our roads and throughout all aspects of their lives.

Youth groups such as 4-H, Junior Forest Wardens, Boys & Girls Clubs, etc. can all benefit from these training modules.

Use the training modules in a community youth traffic safety conference. There is enough material in this resource package for a full day of sessions.

Encourage youth to model good behaviors which makes driving safer.

Invite community traffic resource personnel into your community group to help with the training modules. Alberta Traffic Safety Consultatns, R.C.M.P., Alberta Sheriffs, Alberta Peace Officers, Alberta Health Services and local businesses with occupational health and safety officers all have resources available to you.

Approach your local school to use the School Resources included on this website.
