Coastal Georgia Center for Driver’s Safety receives contribution to address teen driver safety
Savannah, Ga., –The Coastal Georgia Center for Driver’s Safety received a $25,000 contribution from Honda to address teen driver safety by providing greater access to distracted driver education and alcohol-impaired driving prevention.
Grant funds will continue to provide distracted and impaired driver prevention education for youth, young adults and parents in Bryan, Chatham, Effingham, and Liberty counties. These activities include community- and school-based workshops, virtual reality simulation education, and social media messaging.
The Coastal Georgia Center for Driver Safety partnered with the PARC Center, attended college resource fairs and spent more time with face-to-face interaction to reach nearly 3,000 high school students and their parents in FY22. The Center also continued its monthly media campaign about the dangers of distracted driving and impaired driving with a focus on young drivers in FY22.
The top five dangers for younger drivers include distractions like cell phones and passengers; driving at night (drowsiness); speeding and street racing; not wearing seat belts; and impairments like underage drinking and drugs. The goal of the Coastal Georgia Center for Driver Safety is to bring awareness to young, young adults and parents about the dangers of distracted driving.
