A Peer-to-Peer Traffic Safety Campaign Program

This research project built upon an effective peer-to-peer outreach effort in Texas entitled Teens in the Driver Seat, the nation’s first peer-to-peer driving safety program run by teens for teens. The project implemented a peer-to-peer driver’s safety program in Montana to determine if Montana may produce similar safety benefits as those in Texas. The research used a case–control experimental design across four Montana high schools that included one case and one control school in an urban setting (Bozeman and Helena) and another case and control school from a rural setting (Manhattan and Big Timber).
