Parents invited to First Impact event
Apr 6 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

“Think First Missouri,” in partnership with the Missouri Department of Transportation, and the Traffic and Highway Safety Division, has developed an evidence-based, facilitated Traffic Safety Parent Program called “First Impact.”
“First Impact” is a 90–minute evidence-based traffic safety program that educates parents about Missouri’s GDL law. The goal of First Impact is to reduce new driver crashes, and the resulting injuries and fatalities, by increasing parental awareness and enforcement of Missouri’s GDL law.
Objectives of the program are to increase wareness of teen driving risks, advance the understanding of Missouri’s GDL law as well as GDL monitoring and enforcement at home, and also understanding the importance of being a positive role model.
First Impact provides the tools parents need to monitor, coach, and support their new teen driver. First Impact features a video and discussion to promote the importance of parents and teens working together to reduce teen crashes, injuries and fatalities.
Ensuring parents understand the risks and responsibilities associated with driving is essential in preventing teen driving tragedies.
The program is delivered by trained GDL Coaches who coach parents by presenting key facts and proven strategies to help parents lower their teens’ crash risk by utilizing the Missouri GDL law.
The “First Impact” Program will take place free of charge with the goal of reducing teen fatalities:
• Wednesday, April 4, from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Mexico High School, 639 Wade.
• Wednesday, April 18 at Van–Far High School on April 18, from 6-7:30 p.m.
