Reference: “Drive 4 Life” Teen Driver Safety Education Program

THIS SATURDAY- March 2nd!

The Corona Police Department’s Traffic Section is hosting another year of its “Drive 4 Life” Teen Driver Safety Education Program. This program is designed for young drivers between the ages of 15 ½ and 19 who have a driver’s license, a learner’s permit, or are about to get one. The goal of the program is to educate our young drivers and their parents in an effort to promote traffic safety on our roadways and to prevent fatal traffic collisions. The program focuses on the four most common factors that lead to fatal traffic collisions involving young drivers: Speeding, Driving Under the Influence, Seatbelts, and Street Racing are all addressed in detail.

The Corona Police Department has also created a Youth Traffic Diversion Program.  The purpose of this new program is to provide an education aspect to those teen drivers who have received infraction moving violation citations from Corona Police Officers.  The offender that receives a citation for specific moving violations will have an opportunity to have the citation dismissed if he or she completes the “Drive 4 Life” program.  Teen drivers make mistakes and the goal of the program is to educate the offender so that they drive more safely upon the roadways.  Furthermore, a successful completion of the program will provide the teen driver with a fresh start in their driving career. 

This program is FREE and parents are encouraged to attend as we address many of their questions and concerns about vehicle code compliance and safety recommendations. The next class of 2013 will take place on Saturday March 2, 2013, from 9:30am to 2:00pm at the Corona Police Department Training Center, located at 730 Corporation Yard Way in Corona.

Call (951) 736- 2355 to register for the class, or complete the registration form at http://discovercorona.com/City-Departments/Police-Department/Drive-4-Life.aspx.
