Safe driving course slated for teenagers
Caddo Sheriff’s Office
A safe driving program for young drivers will be held on Friday, July 26, at Sheriff’s Safety Town, 8910 Jewella Ave. The program will focus on distracted and impaired driving.
The safety course will cover distractions including texting, cell phones and music, and different forms of impairment such as alcohol and drug use.
Part of the course includes operating an electric vehicle while wearing impairment goggles that simulate the effects of driving under the influence. Teens can attend either of two sessions from 10 a.m. to noon or from 1-3 p.m.
Participants must have either a valid driver’s license or learner’s permit. Each session is limited to 15 participants, so pre-registration is required.
To register, call Sheriff’s Safety Town at 698-7233.
