Court Diversion

About National Traffic Safety Institute


Jeffrey M. Chase, Ph.D, a former firefighter, pioneered the concept of a defensive driving program for citation dismissal.  Founded in 1974, the National Traffic Safety Institute (NTSI) was the first program of its kind and remains the largest for-profit company and most innovative provider of collision prevention and driver safety programs in the U.S. Our innovative approach is anchored in teaching personal responsibility through an interactive curriculum focusing on behavior modification. We believe drivers understand the importance of following safety standards and stress personal choice as a means of effecting a positive change in driving behavior.
