RALEIGH, N.C. — As prom season starts, North Carolina Highway Patrol troopers are conducting an initiative to reduce the number of collisions and traffic deaths involving teenagers.

Troopers are calling the initiative “Drive to Live” and will conduct it from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day this week. Troopers will be enforcing all traffic laws around schools and conducting traffic safety education programs at high schools before the end of the school year.

Traffic crashes are the leading cause of deaths among teenagers in the country and in North Carolina.
