Ga. teen driver program gets national recognition

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

A Georgia parent-teen driver education program has been selected for inclusion in a national publication highlighting innovative programs helping reduce crashes involving teen drivers.

The University of Georgia says the Parents Reducing Injuries and Driver Error, or PRIDE, program is 1 of 5 to be included in "Curbing Teen Driver Crashes: An In-Depth Look at State Novice Driver Initiatives." The publication by the Governors Highway Safety Association includes a detailed look at what states are doing to address teen driver safety.

The Georgia program was developed in 2003 by the Georgia Traffic Injury Prevention Institute, a grant-funded program in the University of Georgia College of Family and Consumer Sciences. The free program is a two-hour course that addresses the driving attitudes, knowledge and behavior of parents and teens.
