Alive at 25 focuses on young adult drivers, the group with the greatest risk of death by motor vehicle crash.
The Hendersonville Police Department offers the National Safety Council’s Alive at 25 program free of charge to area teenagers. The classes are geared toward teens who have received a moving traffic violation.
Course objectives include being able to:
- Recognize that drivers in the 15-24 age group are more likely than anyone else to be injured or killed in a vehicle crash and understanding why those drivers are at such high risk
- Understand the consequences of making poor judgments or taking unnecessary risks in a vehicle
- Recognize the positive characteristics that can help them and their friends make wise driving decisions
- Identify actions they can take to keep control whether they are a driver or a passenger
- Commit to making better driving choices and to help their friends make better driving choices
The program is available free of charge to young drivers between the ages of 16-24. Classes are offered when there are enough participants to make the four-hour training practical. Parents or young drivers who may be interested can call the Hendersonville Police Department at (828) 697-3025.
