Arrive Alive ~ YOVASO

Arrive Alive is an educational campaign in Virginia to establish safe driving among teens during the warm weather months. The goal of the campaign is create positive behavior among teens during the formative driving years.

According to statistics, the months between May and September are the most dangerous for youth on the road. Increased driving time, later curfews, cruising, speeding, driving with too many passengers, distractions, and alcohol are the key factors in teen crashes during spring and summer. Events such as prom, graduation celebrations, beach week, and summer parties also create increased risks for crashes during this period.

Arrive Alive encompasses all of these dangerous driving components and enables teens to work together to reduce risks and influence safer teen driving.
