Toyota is promoting safe driving with its TeenDrive365 program for the first time in Pearl, Mississippi. CNN reports that “teens and their parents will get in cars and the classroom to learn about defensive driving skills, crash avoidance techniques and the dangers of distracted driving.”
Michael Rouse, the Vice President of diversity, philanthropy, and community affairs at Toyota reflects on the program and says, “Whether or not a teen has taken formal driver’s education, the TeenDrive365 program can help Mississippi families improve their defensive driving skills.” Rouse also says that the program allows young drivers to “get more behind-the-wheel driving experience, and the parents get new tools for coaching and supporting their new drivers.”
Teens are high risk drivers, due to being easily distracted and having a lack of experience, so it is important that we give them tools like TeenDrive365 to help them be safer out on the road. This program will hopefully make its way to cities in all 50 states to promote safe driving to teens everywhere.
