KSP to Host 'Alive at 25' Teen Driving Class in Calloway County

Date of News Release: 07/16/2014

(Murray, Ky.) - The Kentucky State Police partnered with the National Safety Council and Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Inc. to provide a state-certified, four-hour safe driving course for teens. The program is FREE to schools throughout Kentucky and can be taken in lieu of the state's Graduated Drivers Licensing Program.

The course involves interactive media segments, workbook exercises, role playing and more, allowing young drivers to develop convictions and strategies that will keep them safe on the road. The latest edition has a strong focus on good decision-making skills. Skill practice and on-the-spot defensive driving techniques help change bravado into confidence. In addition to language that resonates with young adults, there's also emphasis on classroom participation. Participants are encouraged to join in non-threatening, non-judgmental discussions — exploring how changing driving behavior makes personal, legal and financial sense.

Two classes are scheduled for July 26, 2014 at the Murray Calloway Transit Authority, 1111 Transit Way, the first class will begin at 08:00 a.m. and the second class at 1:00 p.m.

To register for the course or request more information about the program, contact Trooper First Class Jay Thomas at (270) 356-6264 or by email at dennis.thomas@ky.gov .
