Come Home Alive educates parents and their teens about safe driving

Posted on

Parents of teen drivers and their children are invited to attend the Come Home Alive safe driving program.

The program brings together parents, students, school officials, law enforcement representatives and community members to focus on reducing the number of teen driving tickets, crashes, and fatalities in our community.

Stressing the influence that parents have on teen drivers, Come Home Alive complements the driver education course taught in Chesterfield County high schools. The program includes information about distracted driving, coaching tips for parents, traffic laws governing teen drivers, insurance reminders, safety reminders and an overview of the driver education curriculum. Parents of 10th-grade students are the main focus, but parents with students in other grades are also welcome.

All Come Home Alive sessions are free and run from 7-8:30 p.m. Parents and teen drivers may attend the presentation most convenient to them:
