Posted: April 19, 2012
The New Jersey Teen Safe Driving Coalition is sponsoring a teen-led summit for teens 14 to 16 years of age and their parents on Saturday, May 12, 2012 from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. It will be held at iPlay America, located off Route 9 in Freehold.
The Good Driving for Life Teen Safe Driving Summit will give attendees the opportunity to learn about the dangers young people face on the road and what they can do to address those risks through a series of workshops and presentations. In addition to focusing on distraction, teens will also discuss the impact drugs and alcohol have on their ability to safely operate a motor vehicle, the importance of seat belt use, and the dangers prompted by passengers and nighttime driving.
Summit highlights include:
- teen-led workshops including a hands-on distracted driving course
- GDL, driver coaching, insurance & vehicle selection workshops for parents
- Marilyn Abbate, whose true story is told in the feature film “The Fifth Quarter”
- lunch, giveaways and raffles
- discount admission to iPlay America indoor theme park (after the summit)
Admission is $15 per teen and one parent; $25 per family of 3 or more. Don’t delay, registration is limited and closes May 4th, 2012. Register here
