First Impact offers a FREE 90-minute evidence-based traffic safety program that educates parents about Missouri’s Graduated Driver License law.

Attendance is perfect for parents of teen drivers, ages 14 - 19 and new & soon to be drivers.

First Impact aims to eliminate motor vehicle fatalities and injuries among teens. It further attempts to reduce teen-involved crashes by increasing parental awareness and enforcement of Missouri's GDL law.

Objectives of the program are to increase:

  • Awareness of teen driving risks
  • Understanding of Missouri’s GDL law
  • GDL monitoring and enforcement at home
  • Importance of being a positive role model

The program is delivered by trained Facilitators and Law Enforcement Officers who coach parents by presenting key facts and proven strategies to help parents lower their teen's crash risk by utilizing the Missouri GDL law. The statewide program is available free of charge. Funding is provided by MoDOT’s Highway Safety & Traffic Division, Rusk Rehabilitation Hospital, and State Farm Insurance.

Please consider sharing these invitations with parents of teen drivers as well as agencies and safety partners who serve parents and their teens.
