DRIVE will highlight the Hampton Roads community with the DRIVE to do better. There will be a DRIVE concert all songs and poems will be about either teen safe driving or having drive and determination to do better.
Car crashes remain the No. 1 killer of U.S. teens, taking over 3,000 young lives every year and injuring over 280,000. This deadly toll results, to a large extent, from lack of driving experience, but it also reflects the fact that the teenage brain is still a work in progress.
