Students Against Dangerous Driving (SADD) empowers young people to make safer and better choices on the road. Check out this clip to understand more about SADD and what we do.

“SADD gives students an opportunity to deal with real-world issues and find workable solutions. There isn’t a one size fits all approach - every school and every student can create the solutions for their own community’s needs.
The support and guidance from the SADD community is epic and really motivates students to come up with ideas for their own schools.
SADD helps develop students leadership and collaboration skills. The whole framework is about supporting each other to create meaningful activities to promote safer driving and ultimately, safer communities.
We ❤ SADD.”
