"No Empty Chair" Teen Driving Safety Campaign

“No Empty Chair” Teen Driving Safety Campaign – April 23 – 27, 2018   Each year thousands of high school students across New York State look forward to attending their prom and graduation ceremony. For parents, siblings, educators and the community, these memorable moments become tarnished when a child dies in a car crash. Unfortunately, this happens all too often and law enforcement are faced with the difficult task of notifying loved ones. In an effort to reduce these tragedies, the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee (GTSC) launched the “No Empty Chair” educational campaign in 2014. The theme is to symbolize the missing high school senior on graduation day. Free posters to support this campaign are available at: http://www.safeny.ny.gov/SRO-Toolkit/contact-us.html
