UPS Road Code

This free national program educates teens on safe driving techniques based in part on the training UPS uses for its own drivers, who are among the safest drivers worldwide.

UPS Road Code

Driving Change in Teen Driving Behaviors

Since 2009, The UPS Foundation has partnered with Boys & Girls Clubs of America to deliver UPS Road Code, a program based in large part on the same safety training used with UPS’s own drivers. Approximately 125 UPS employees trained as volunteer instructors teach UPS Road Code’s safe driving techniques to help teens “Drive Change.” The program focuses on different safety principles, from basic instruction to the consequences of risky behaviors such as talking on cell phones, texting or drinking while driving. The program’s driving simulators test teens’ safe driving knowledge using a computer screen featuring interactive animation, a steering wheel, and life-like gas and brake pedals. UPS Road Code is currently available free of charge in 57 Boys & Girls Clubs in 46 cities across the country.

The Need for a Teen Safe Driving Program

Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens, accounting for more than one in three teenage deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Each day, more than eight people are killed and some 1,100 people are injured in crashes reported to involve a distracted driver (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration).

In contrast, did you know UPS drivers worldwide are among the safest on the roads? UPS’s 102,000 drivers worldwide log more than 3 billion miles per year. More than 8,700 UPS drivers have qualified for the company’s elite Circle of Honor, which recognizes drivers who have had no avoidable accidents in 25 years.
