Rule the Road Teen Driving Event Coming to Scott County
Your teen is finally in the driver’s seat! While getting a driver’s license is an important milestone, many parents are left wondering, is my teen really ready to take to the road?
Research has shown that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for 15-20 year olds. This year, nearly 4 million new teen drivers will be licensed in the United States. Half of them will be involved in a crash before they turn 20.
Safe driving skills are learned over time, and the more practice you get, the better driver you’ll become. Specifically targeted towards teens ages 15-18 who are about to, or have recently received their driver’s license, Rule the Road gives teens the unique opportunity to learn and practice skills they need to keep them safe behind the wheel. Sponsored by the Scott County Sheriff’s Office, the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, Indiana Students Against Destructive Decisions, and State Farm Insurance, the Rule the Road Teen Driving Event will be held on Saturday, April 20, 2013 at Scottsburg High School. This day-long event is FREE and pre-registration is required. Teens can expect to learn and practice hazard recognition, vehicle speed and space management and the importance of wearing a seatbelt and not driving impaired or distracted.
Eligible participants must have at least a learner’s permit issued by March 31, 2013. For more information and to register, please visit www.in.gov/ruletheroad or contact the Scott County Sheriff’s Office. Registration closes on March 31st.
