Public Service Announcements

Partners for Safe Teen Driving produces Public Service Announcements (PSAs) designed to call to the attention of  parents and teens the risks and responsibilities of driving. Produced and programmed much like commercials, but not for profit, the PSAs have been seen throughout Virginia and used as classroom educational supplements.
