My family has a lot of great holiday traditions, and the 4th of July is one of the best. We all gather in a small town on the eastern shore of Maryland – one of those places that make you feel like you’ve stepped back in time to an era when life was simpler.

National Organizations for Youth Safety hosted a Twitter Chat, inviting partner organizations, parents and youth leaders to join a conversation about the state of youth traffic safety today – and what we can do to improve it.

Have a safe Memorial Day
