Lawrence Buckfire Asks Parents To Get Behind National Teen Driver Safety Week
Date:10/22/2013

Southfield, Michigan (PRWEB) October 23, 2013

The week of October 20-26 has been designated as the National Teen Driver Safety Week (NTDSW). This annual event is an advocacy campaign that concentrates on safe driving practices for young adults.
