DCH Auto Group Supports 2013 Global Youth Traffic Safety Month
May is a perfect time for teens to be focused on driving safety. With prom, graduation, and summer trips just ahead, there are a lot of teens and others on the roads celebrating and enjoying the warmer weather. That’s why DCH Auto Group and its partners, Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) and the National Organizations for Youth Safety (NOYS), and numerous likeminded organizations across the globe are raising awareness all month long to educate teens about safe driving habits.
Since 2008, DCH Auto Group, in keeping with the company’s core values, has focused its charitable giving, local community involvement and grass roots activism to the cause of teen driver safety, including drunk driving, distracted driving and many others. The auto retailer, with 27 car dealerships in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and California, formed the DCH Teen Safe Driving Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit charity, to further the company’s message that distracted driving, especially among new and young drivers, is dangerous and potentially deadly. DCH is also a member of the National Safety Council Coalition on Teen Driving.
Through the company’s involvement with this Coalition, DCH is working to raise awareness among parents of young drivers about the importance of the graduated driver’s license, and the importance of parents playing an active part in their child’s driver education.
The DCH Teen Safe Driving Foundation is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to reducing the number of deaths and injuries resulting from teen related auto crashes by promoting safe driving through greater awareness, education and advocacy directed to teens and their parents.
