DMV Using Social Media to Reach Teen Drivers

Effort is designed to spread teen safe driving messages via Twitter, Facebook and You Tube.

The Department of Motor Vehicles is branching into social media as a way to spread teen safe-driving safety messages to teens and others.

DMV, through its Center for Teen Safe Driving, has developed a Facebook page and YouTube video channel to attract attention to safety issues related to 16-and 17-year-old drivers. The YouTube video channel showcases winners from DMV’s annual statewide teen safe driving video contest for high school students.

In addition, DMV also has a general Twitter outreach to announce teen driving messages as well as other updates regarding the agency’s services to the public.

“More and more people, especially teenagers, turn to these popular social media sites for information and to communicate with each other,” DMV Commissioner Melody A. Currey said.

More information on DMV services and links to these sites can also be found at ct.gov/dmv

FORGET TEEN DRIVERS IN SIMS. TEACH THEM ABOUT NOT TO DRINK AND DRIVE NOR SPEED. I RECENTLY SAW A TANKED UP GUY AND IT WAS SAD!

And you immediately assume they were from Simsbury? It is this type shortsightedness that assumes all teens are this way. There are some very responsible teen drivers. And it is not just teens who speed and/or drink and drive. Far more adults take that award.
