Impact: Teen Driver Program

This is a free event! Parents and Students are all welcome. 

Please RSVP to save your seat at 

 Teen safe driving talk tickets

This program is a deeply meaningful and educational program for all our families, community and our current/soon to be teen drivers. It is a program we feel should be seen by all families.

Learn about teen driving requirements and limitations and distracted driving in this day and age of electronic devices.

Learn about:

-Strategies to keep your kids safe on the roads

-Graduated Drivers Licensing (GDL) laws 

-How YOU can help stop the #1 killer of teens in America — reckless and distracted driving

Facts to consider:

-You need 50 hours of supervised driving experience with an adult to obtain a California driver's license.

-It takes only 6 hours of supervised behind the wheel experience with a certified driving instructor to get a California driver’s license. Yet, a manicurist must complete 400 hours under supervision to be licensed in the state of California.

-Teen drivers are at the highest risk.The crash rate (per mile driven) for 16 year olds is four times that of adult drivers.

-Having passengers is a serious distraction for teen drivers. Carrying 3 or more passengers increases the risk of a crash for 16 and 17 year olds three-fold compared to driving alone.

Thank you!
