In Honor of Frank Kenel
The American Driver and Traffic Safety Education Association’s (ADTSEA) Teacher Excellence Award (TEA) sponsored by The National Road Safety Foundation (NRSF), honors outstanding driver and traffic safety educators.
The non-profit National Road Safety Foundation has been a strong supporter of driver education throughout its more than 50 years. NRSF produces and distributes, at no charge, educational films, teaching manuals and public service campaigns for use by professionals in driver education, traffic safety, public health and law enforcement. More than a million copies of the Foundation's films and materials have been distributed nationwide. Based in New York City, NRSF was founded in 1962 by Fraydun Manocherian, who as a teen, lost two friends to a drunk driver. For more information, visit www.nrsf.org.

More teens delaying getting driver's licenses
For high school junior Erin Olson, not having a driver’s license is an occasional hassle. Sometimes she has to bum a ride from a sibling or parents or just stay put. “I feel like I still have that independence where I can go where I want,” she said. “In Mankato, we walk wherever we want to go. I feel like it’s better to walk and go on bike rides than to drive.” Olson, 16, is in no rush to get her license, and she’s not alone. Read more here.
