McCall Police To Offer Free Training To Young Drivers
McCall, ID – The McCall Police Department has recently been certified, through the Idaho Transportation Department, to provide the Alive at 25 Defensive Driving program to Valley County and any surrounding counties.
The Alive at 25 Defensive Driving program is an intervention program designed for drivers between the ages of 15-24 years. Statistically, this group of drivers is most likely to be involved in fatal traffic collisions.
The no-cost, 4-1/2 hour program is limited to 20 students per class, and will be offered on Thursday, October 5th at the McCall Fire and EMS building (201 Deinhard Lane). The class will begin at 4:00 p.m.
This course is offered to young drivers in an effort to raise awareness about contributing factors that lead to traffic violations, traffic collisions, and/or fatalities through awareness training. This course places its focus on educating young drivers to adopt safer driving practices, take responsibility for their behavior in various driving situations, and to be aware of many of the typical driving hazards. Unlike traditional driver’s education courses that focus on the mechanics of driving, Alive at 25 addresses the behaviors of drivers.
If you are a young adult who is interested in improving your defensive driving skills and driver awareness, or have any questions about the Alive at 25 program, please contact Sergeant Pete Rittenger with the McCall Police Department at (208) 634-7144, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
