Date of News Release: 05/21/2015
(Murray, Ky.) - The Kentucky State Police partnered with the National Safety Council and Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Inc. to provide a FREE state-certified, four-hour safe driving course for teens. State police say the free, Alive at 25 Defensive Driving Program is being utilized as a force multiplier working in conjunction with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Division of Driver Licensing to educate teens in safe driving practices-while at the same time allowing them to meet the legal requirements to obtain a full drivers license.
The course involves interactive media segments, workbook exercises, role playing and more, allowing young drivers to develop convictions and strategies that will keep them safe on the road. The latest edition has a strong focus on good decision-making skills. Skill practice and on-the-spot defensive driving techniques help change bravado into confidence. In addition to language that resonates with young adults, there's also emphasis on classroom participation. Participants are encouraged to join in non-threatening, non-judgmental discussions - exploring how changing driving behavior makes personal, legal and financial sense.
A class is scheduled for Saturday, May 30, 2015 at the Murray Calloway Transit Authority, 1111 Transit Way, the class will begin at 08:00 a.m. and will end at noon.
