HOUSTON – More than 400 Texas teens die every year in traffic crashes, by far the number one killer of young people. A recent survey found that Cypress Falls students are more likely to engage in risky driving habits than other Texas teens, prompting the school to launch Teens in the Driver Seat (TDS), the nation’s first peer-to-peer safety program for young drivers.

“Most young drivers don’t know that they’re 10 times more likely to die in a crash than people in other age groups,” says Program creator Russell Henk of TTI.

PARENTS: Please take a moment to read the numbers provided from a survey taken in our area. It’s a quick and easy read for all parents, not just those with children attending Cypress Falls.    Cypress Falls driving survey charts1
