NIVD's mission is to reduce automobile collisions and fatalities by eliminating driver error - through training, education, research and advocacy. NIVD is dedicated to educate all drivers, especially teen drivers- about the unexpected situations they will encounter on the road and to give them the knowledge, skills and experience they need to avoid collisions and minimize bodily injury in the event of a collision.
Last Year in the United States – and every year for the past decade – Between 5,000 and 6,000 teenagers were killed in motor vehicle accidents. No other kind of hazard or behavior comes close to claiming as many young lives. And in addition to those killed each year, some 300,000 are injured.
