THE TSEF MISSION
The Traffic Safety Education Foundation’s mission is to educate new drivers, parents with children of ALL ages, teachers and grade 4 through 8 school students about traffic safety and the deadly problems associated with the growing distracted driving epidemic. Driving experts drive distraction free because of what they know. Education is the key to improving knowledge and driving safety in the US.
Sadly, the problem of distracted driving continues to grow at an alarming rate.
It is no secret that driving collisions and crashes are the number one killer of teenagers; there are over 6,000 traffic deaths and 500,000 serious injuries of 13 – 19 year olds that occur every year on US roads.
The sad reality surrounding the increase in distracted driving behavior is this: 1 out of every 150 people in the U.S. will die in automotive collisions or crashes. The goal of the Traffic Safety Education Foundation is to help change these horrific statistics for the better.
The Traffic Safety Education Foundation© is a 501(c)3 entity created by Andy Pilgrim in 2008. The Foundation was formally known as the Andy Pilgrim Foundation.
