ORSP Developing a Proposal



“Share the Keys” is a parent/teen driver orientation developed by Kean University in partnership with the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety and the New Jersey State Police, and based on the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia research. The program was originally piloted in Jersey City Schools in grades K-12 through lesson plans developed by about 40 education majors from Kean. Dr. Claudia Knezek, Project Director, is conducting a follow-up study along with Drs. Roxie James and Susan Polirstok, on the behavioral changes realized by parents of teen drivers who have attended the “Share the Keys” training.
