Come Home Alive program promotes safe teen driving

Posted on

Parents and teen drivers are invited to the Come Home Alive safe driving program. With the goal of reducing car crashes and saving lives, the program brings together parents, students, school officials, law enforcement representatives and community members.

Stressing the influence that parents have on teen drivers, Come Home Alive complements the driver education course taught in high schools. The program includes information about distracted driving, coaching tips for parents, an overview of the driver education curriculum, review of traffic laws governing teen drivers, information about insurance and safety reminders.

Parents of 10th-grade students are the main focus, but parents with students in other grades are also welcome. All Come Home Alive presentations are free and run 7-8:30 p.m. Parents and teen drivers may attend whichever session is most convenient:
