I Promise Program
The I Promise Program is a safe driving program for families with new young drivers.
This program is free and available worldwide.
Car crashes are the main reason that young people die and are permanently injured.
Each year over 8,000 youth die because of car crashes in North America.
Over 400,000 suffer from physical injuries.
In Grey-Bruce, hospitalization rates due to motor vehicle collisions are higher than provincial rates for nearly all age groups. What is particularly distressing is that injury rates from motor vehicle collisions in the 16 – 24 age group are 216% higher than the provincial average.
Youth, parents and community members developed the I Promise Program so that fewer young people would be hurt in car crashes.
How does the I Promise Program work?
People in the community are just as likely to call about the parents, as they are to about the youth – depending on how each drives.
How do I get the I Promise Program materials?

The I Promise Program is provided as a community service to provide information on community resources available. This article is for information purposes only.
