Teen driver improvement course offered

-A A +A

The Levy County Sheriff’s Office, Community Relations Division, is offering a no cost, Teen Driver Improvement Program to all Levy County students who have a current Operators License or Learners Permit or who are about to get their Learners Permit.
The goal of this program is to educate the teen drivers of Levy County of the dangers of aggressive driving, distracted driving, impaired driving and to reinforce the benefits of seatbelt use.
These four issues have been found to be major causes of teens involved in crashes, injuries and fatalities. This program is free of cost and is four hours in duration. This program consists of classroom instruction, videos, PowerPoint presentations and hands-on time during which the students will drive golf carts through a course to learn firsthand the dangers of the choices that they make while driving. This is a graphic presentation that will show the students the human consequences of their driving choices. Parent waivers are required due to the graphic nature of the presentation. All students will be required to pre-register for the class by calling Sgt. Max Long at 352-486-5111 ext. 275 or via e-mail at mlong@levyso.com.
A minimum of eight students are required for class to be held, therefore these dates are tentative.
