WHAT: 
AAA East Central’s Teen Safe Driving Expo helps improve the skills of young drivers on the road, while providing education in a fun way.  Activities offered will include:

  • Distracted Driving Simulators
  • Mock Sobriety Tests by local law enforcement
  • Coroner’s presentation on teen crashes – using real examples
  • Golf Cart Driving Course with Impairment Goggles

WHY:
Due to inexperience behind the wheel, coupled with distracted driving and drinking while driving – teen drivers pose a greater risk on the road. Moreover, according to research by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, nearly two-thirds of people injured or killed in a crash involving a teen driver are people other than the teen behind the wheel. 

WHO:
AAA East Central, Auto Club Driving School, Kentucky Office of Highway Safety, Jo Ann Farmer (Jefferson County Deputy Coroner), Louisville Metro Police Department, Kentucky State Police, and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.

WHEN:
Thursday, October 4th
7:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

WHERE:
Iroquois High School
4615 Taylor Blvd., Louisville KY
