According to the CDC, teen drivers between the ages of 16-19 are three times more likely than drivers 20 and older to be involved in a deadly crash. Young drivers can experience the consequences of driving distracted or impaired during this program, which takes teenagers age 15 and older through a variety of interactive exercises designed to replicate the impairment created by drinking or texting. Certified instructors discuss the importance of developing safe habits on the roadways. Teens then use electric cars to complete obstacle courses designed to simulate driving while texting and impaired. Pre-registration and parent/guardian attendance required.
This event encourages children to learn how to safely ride their bikes in a mock-roadway, kid-sized setting.

Participants are required to bring their own helmets and bicycles; both will be inspected for safety. By appointment only; call 631.451.5335 to schedule a time to attend.
