This weekend Via Christi will launch a Safe Teen driving program which is being supported by a $200,000 grant from Kohl’s.
The program will provide free hands-on education to teens and pre-teens about the dangers posed by distracted or impaired driving through year-round school presentations and community events.
The Safe Teen program kicks off on Saturday, October 21 at the South YMCA’s Free Teen Late Night event, which is from 8:30-11:30 p.m.
During the event, teens will be able to use a driving simulator that allows them to virtually experience the risks of distracted or impaired driving.
This should be an eye-opening experience. I think some adults probably could use this too. (But this event – and the program – is for teens.)
