Nebraska Safety Council at LNE - March 7 and 28 @ 2:15
Dear LNE Families,
Every year, young adult drivers are involved in more than six million collisions, resulting in 14,000 fatalities. To save lives and equip teens to drive more defensively, the National Safety Council has revised and updated its "Alive at 25" defensive driving program. This course addresses the number one cause of death for drivers ages 15 to 24 - motor vehicle crashes - and has been adopted by many states and courts for graduated licensing and traffic violator programs. "Alive At 25" encourages young drivers to take responsibility for their driving behavior.
Teens will learn: why young adults often underestimate risk; the effects of inexperience, peer pressure, and such distractions as cell phones, text messaging, MP3 players and GPS units; the dangers of 'kneeing"; state and local driving laws and regulations; communication skills for assertiveness and being a young leader; and, responsibility of passengers.
Lincoln Northeast High School would like to offer this four hour class presented by the Nebraska Safety Council at LNE on two Tuesdays during early PLC release from 2:15 p.m.- 4:15 p.m. on March 7 and 28, 2017, in Room 110.
The Nebraska Safety Council provides the instructor. The cost for this course is $50. State Farm Insurance is willing to pay half of the cost for each student, so the cost for your student would be $25. In addition, if a student is on free lunch, the cost is $10 and reduced lunch, the cost is $15, and the flier lists a phone number to call.
Registration is done through the Nebraska Safety Council, and the information and a phone number are on the attached flier.
