Gwinnett Police Department's crime prevention officers are offering a free P.R.I.D.E. Program safe driving class to assist new teen drivers ages 14-16 and their parents from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19, at the West Precinct in nearby Norcross.
P.R.I.D.E. stands for Parents Reducing Injuries and Driver Error.
In the award-winning course, officers instruct parents and teens on what to expect during the 40 hours of supervised practice driving time required by Georgia law and throughout their driving experience. Officers do not conduct any behind the wheel training.
Classes fill up fast, so register early by calling 678-442-6553. The West Precinct is located at 6160 Drive in Norcross.
The crime prevention officers also present Traffic Safety for Teens. The free, 45-minute classes cover crash dynamics, seat belts, speeding, alcohol, distractions such as texting while driving, road rules, and street signs.
To schedule a Traffic Safety for Teens class, contact Officer S. Kissel at 678-442-6553 or email@example.com or contact Corporal C. McGrath at 678-442-6572 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
