Keeping Young Drivers Safer Just Got Easier

The I Promise Program

Hamilton, Ontario – March 2004 – The theme for World Health Day, observed April 7th this year, is ROAD SAFETY (

Just in time, the I Promise Program – teen safe driving initiative, is pleased to announce a significant change. Whereas there was a cost of $49.00 to participate, the program is now available at no cost. There is no reason what-so-ever for every insurance company to not participate. Every insurer, broker and agent should be informing their policyholder to go to the website and use the Parent-Youth Safe Driving Contract.

Parents and youth can download the Parent-Youth Safe Driving Contract and Rear Window Sign after filling in a few fields for our statistical purposes. Further, parents and youth can choose to use both or either of the program components. As a result of these changes, the program which was only available across the US and Canada, is now fully international!

Feel free to go to the website and give it a try. (Use the word TEST for vehicle, BUT still fill in the rest of the form – if just taking a look.)

Our goal with respect to teen driver safety is to reduce the risk of teen driver car crashes, injuries and deaths.

The objective of this email is to inform as many insurance people as possible so that they may inform their policyholders.

The I Promise Program, now Trademarked in Canada and the US provides the greatest win/win – at no cost, to insurers and parents alike. The program can help youth return safety and reduce losses associated with young driver car crashes.
