Teens Get Safe Driving Lessons

Every year thousands of teens die in car crashes in the US. Crashes are the number one killer of youth between the ages of 16 and 19. Prince George’s County Police and the National Transportation Safety Board teamed up today to provide dozens of county youth with some real-life tips to stay safe behind the wheel.

Youngsters from various high schools saw images of a deadly car wreck, talked with the mother of a teen killed in a car crash, and experienced a distracted driving simulator.

“As police, we would much rather stop youth and give them a citation than to come out to an accident scene where a teen has been injured or killed. That’s why having teens take part in this daylong driver’s education class is so important,” said Corporal Jeremy Jordon with the county police department.
