Chamblee, GA, March 7, 2016 – The Post Reports – The Georgia Teens Ride with P.R.I.D.E. (Parents Reducing Injuries and Driver Error) and the Chamblee Police Department are offering a free two-hour course designed to help parents and their new teen drivers, ages 15-16.
“Since the program first began, the city and police department have received positive feedback and praise from within the community,” says the City of Chamblee. “Residents of Chamblee as well as teens and parents from across Metro Atlanta have attended.”
Rather than a technical hands-on driver training course, this program addresses driver attitude, knowledge and behavior of both the parent and new teen drivers. Parents and teens receive facts and statistics, crash dynamics, and information on Georgia’s Teenage and Adult Driver Responsibility Act (TADRA), including Joshua’s Law. Parents also receive instructions and a take-home guide on supervised driving practice time, while teens engage in a roundtable discussion about risky behaviors.
- Part I: “Seat Belts and Crash Dynamics”
- Part II: “Understanding the Licensing Process and Georgia’s Teen Driving Laws”
- Part III: “Coaching Your Teen Driver” (for parents) OR “Getting the Keys to the Wheels and Keeping Them” (for teenage drivers)
- Part IV: “How Will Your Day End?”
If you would like to attend a class offered this year, see the Chamblee City Calendar for dates and more information.
