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.

Here’s an interesting thought. Why is it that Louisiana and neighboring state Mississippi are always on the bottom of every national ranking involving virtually every aspect of a state’s quality of life? Yet casino gambling is widespread throughout both states at a level not found any place else in America outside of Las Vegas.

On April 28, citizens of Shreveport face a choice: Fund basic city services or plunge the city into fiscal chaos. It would have been inconceivable 20 years ago that routine tax renewals to fund the fire and police departments and other basic city services would not have the collective support of the city’s business, civic and political leadership.
