DMV Using Social Media to Reach Teen Drivers
Effort to Spread Teen Safe Driving Messages
WETHERSFIELD – 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.
