Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death and injury for teenagers. Teen drivers are far more likely than other drivers to be involved in fatal crashes because they lack driving experience and tend to take greater risks. The safeTEEN Driving Academy is a unique safety program that incorporates behind-the-wheel training with a variety of outdoor demonstrations and activities. There are no “DO-OVERS” when mistakes are made while driving so we have to do better before they happen. The safeTEEN Driving Academy is a four-hour program that provides behind-the-wheel training on essential driving maneuvers, focus on taking responsibility as a driver, maintain control in driving situations and peer pressure. This hands on program will also provide behind the scenes and Q & A with MEDIC/EMS onsite, interactions activities with local police and/or certified instructors, and a highly interactive classroom session on information to develop teens into safe, independent defensive drivers for a lifetime with an expert instructor. Teens must at least have their learner’s permit to participate.
