Driving program support

first_imgState Farm Insurance Company has donated $10,000 to the University of Georgia College of Family and Consumer Sciences in support of the Georgia Traffic Injury Prevention Institute.GTIPI, a Conyers-based UGA Extension program housed in the FACS department of human development and family science, will use the funds to expand the Georgia Teens Ride with P.R.I.D.E. (Parents Reducing Injuries and Driver Error) program.P.R.I.D.E. is a free, two-hour course that focuses on seat belts, crash dynamics, Georgia’s teen driving law, parental influence and peer pressure. It is designed to help parents and new teen drivers manage the 40 hours of supervised practice driving time required by law.Roughly 200 PRIDE instructors in Georgia teach an average of 25 parent-teen classes each month. Since the PRIDE program was launched in 2003, more than 13,000 teens have been reached. Students are also informed about State Farm’s Celebrate My Drive program, which provides support and incentives for communities to support safer teen driving.This award will enable GTIPI to expand its outreach to more communities interested in offering proven teen driving training.“This is a natural partnership,” said Don Bower, UGA Extension specialist and FACS professor emeritus. “State Farm is a leader in all kinds of support for safer driving. Their acclaimed “Celebrate My Drive” initiative complements the UGA P.R.I.D.E. program to provide key elements of a comprehensive local teen driver education effort.”For more information, contact GTIPI at (800) 342-9819.last_img read more
