ReduceTNCrashes.com is a portal connecting schools with teen traffic safety activities. Activities allow local or national organizations and community leaders to work alongside students to further traffic safety education and awareness. Participating high schools began their fall semester by registering on the Reduce TN Crashes website. Each school then spent the school year selecting activities from the Reduce TN Crashes website, engaging their peers and community, and then submitting documentation of their completion of those activities to earn points and a spot on the Reduce TN Crashes leaderboard. At the end of the academic year, participating schools received a THSO certificate with a ranking indicative of the respective school’s placement: Bronze, Silver, or Gold.
