CLARK, NJ – "Save Your Teen Driver" is a free, interactive workshop for teenaged drivers and their parents. It is designed to increase the safety of teen drivers on the road and reduce the number of teen-involved car crashes. In 2010, over 40,000 teenage drivers were involved in a car crash in New Jersey.
The Union County Education Association and the New Jersey Education Association are partnering to present the program on May 27, 2015 at the Holiday Inn in Clark. The two-hour program begins at 6 p.m.
“The activity will engage drivers, new and experienced, in a way that will cause them to increase their awareness behind the wheel,” UCEA President Lisa Palin said.
The interactive, computer-based activity "tests teen drivers like they never have been tested before in six key areas of driving." After the simulated, “video game”-type driving test, the driver learns their score as well as their risk level in causing a crash.
"The Union County Education Association is committed to expanding educational opportunities available to our students within the classroom and the community. This event is a great opportunity to collaborate with the community in education and protecting our students and children," UCEA Treasurer Franklin Stebbins said.
Attendees are invited to bring their own laptops or to register for one that will be provided. Participants will take the test, receive their scores, and meet with representatives from the organization.
Parents are invited and encouraged to attend this event with their teenager. To register, please visit: https://sytd.eventbrite.com.
