Suwanee program targets teen driving safety
SUWANEE - The Suwanee Police Department is offering a free two-hour program designed to assist parents and their new teen drivers.
Georgia Teens Ride with PRIDE (Parents Reducing Injuries and Driver Error) will be offered at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, August 29, at the Suwanee Police Training Center at 2966 Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road.
The course focuses on driver attitude, knowledge, and behavior. Rather than a technical, hands-on driver training program, PRIDE addresses seat belts, crash dynamics, Georgia’s teen driving laws, parental influence, and peer pressure.
The course is free and open to the public, but space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration is required by August 19; forms are available in the “Quick Clicks” section at www.suwanee.com. A parent or guardian is required to attend with their teen.
The City of Suwanee Police Department offers PRIDE in cooperation with the Georgia Traffic Injury Prevention Institute.
